Italian Millefiori

Most color assortments of our Italian Millefiori have diameters that range from between 8 to 10 mm (5/16 inch to 3/8 inch) so there are about 50 to 80 pieces in each bag. However, the yellow and pink and baby blue assortments normally run slightly smaller than that, so there can be twice as many pieces. We try to re-photograph each incoming batch, so the pictures are your best guide for what piece size is like.

Using Millefiori Glass in Mosaic Art

Millefiori Glass is a traditional form of art glass that is disk-shaped with different multicolored patterns and used in glass fusing, jewelry and mosaic art.

Product Coverage

This is a problematic issue because the millefiori is best used as an accent with other materials instead of as area coverage. That being said, one 2-ounce bag should cover roughly 1.5 to 2 square inches, but that will depend somewhat on how efficiently you nest the pieces.

Compatibility

The thickness varies but is roughly 1/8 inch, which makes them compatible with the 3/8-inch and 3/4-inch glass mosaic tile we sell. However, keep in mind that the product is handmade and hand cut, so not every piece will be cut perfectly straight. This has never kept us from making use of it in our art.

Cutting Tile

In theory the millefiori can be cut using a pair of mosaic glass cutters, but the pieces are already small enough to make cutting unnecessary and problematic.
