CHEVRON BEADS and CHEVRON CANE

The first examples of Chevron Beads were created in Venice and Murano, Italy in the late 14th century.  The are also referred to as rosetta or star beads.
Chevron Beads are made from a cane, which has been drawn from a gather.  The gather begins as a molten ball of glass.  For beads, an air bubble is blown into the gather.  For the solid multicolored cane used in making millefiori beads, no air bubble is blown into the gather.  The gather is plunged into a star or flower shaped mold, and subsequent layers of colored glass are applied.  Between color layers, the gather is either plunged back into the mold or not, depending on the design the glassworker is working on.
After all color layers have been applied, the molten gather is drawn out into a long rod, called a cane.  The diameter of the cane is determined by the original size of the gather and the velocity at which it is drawn.  The cane is wider at the ends and thinner in the middle, resulting in several different sizes of beads being made from the original gather.  The air bubble from the beginning of the process has now stretched out with the cane, resulting in the hole in the finished bead.
The cane is cut into desired lengths.  These are beveled and polished, the result being the Chevron Bead.
