Millefiori, sometimes called “caning,” was first created to use with glass. It was used by the Ancient Phoenicians, the Romans, and Egyptians, but was made famous by 19th century Venetians.
In the 1970s polymer clay artists realized the technique could be adapted to polymer clay.
Traditional millefiori beads are multiple millefiori slices on one spherical or cylindrical bead, Sarah does something a little different. Sarah’s beads are a single millefiori slice, often laid flat though sometimes shaped.
Now, nearly every necklace made by Sarah Sexton incorporates millefiori into the beads.
