New Beads Arrival - Hearts, Focal Beads, Feather Beads
New this week on VenetianBeadShop.com, we have some fabulous hearts in 30 mm with bold sashes of color and 24kt gold foil. We also added some 30mm hearts bicolor with gold and silver and stripes of transparent colors. Our new double hearts in a 19mm are great for earrings.
There are other new items, just visit our NEW ARRIVALS
page and scroll through. We expect two large shipments next week so be sure to check back. The beadmakers are working hard on our designs from our last working with them.
Venice Liberation Day
In Venice this week they celebrated the Liberation of Venice (April 25) and the feast of Venice patron saint. This is also known as the "festa del Bocolo" where it is celebrated by the presentation of a red rose to loved ones. Bocolo in Italian means blossom.
Hope you enjoy our tidbits on Italian life.

The BeadExpo in Oakland was a huge success. Thanks to everyone who came out. We enjoyed meeting so many of our online customers and inviting new customers to shop with us.
We heard many wonderful comments on the quality and diversity of the classes held there. Everyone felt they certainly got more than the cost of the class. We enjoyed helping some students choose their beads and then see their progress during the day at the classes.
The weather was great in Oakland and it was nice to see the downtown Oakland redevelopment. There is a lot of interesting architecture in the old part of town and a wide range of restaurant selections within easy walking distance a definite plus for everyone.
Now we are looking forward to Las Vegas on 1-3 June. We'll post the details shortly. What could be more fun than Las Vegas with Venetian Beads?
