Kitzbitz Art Glass

Effetre Resource Page

Effetre resource page - Effetre is glass made on the island of Murano, Venice, Italy. It is very popular with glass bead makers partly due to the broad range of colours available. Many stockists of Effetre glass rods use their own colour descriptions and stock numbers. The last 3 digits used by any stockist for their stock numbers will refer to the Effetre factory stock number. The information below has been collated by kitzbitz art glass and is intended as a guide only. For a wonderful colour chart by Miriam Steger showing Effetre glass in bead form please visit Facet Design.
