What a great find!  This small store is chocked full of product that is very different from what we find in our bead stores.  They have Swarovski and findings that will hold rivolis.  We found a small selection of vintage pierced glass pendants, funky beads and the highlight was the large assortment of metal filagree castings!  The metal pieces come in several sizes, different finishes and the assortment is incredible.  We only had the chance to look in a few of the boxes as you have to ask them to take them down to see them - but every box we saw had fabulous things in it!  They also have display cases with samples made up with their products.

The store is very close to Piazza Navona - just a couple blocks of walking.  It is set back on a small street off of Vittorio Emanuele.  This store is well worth searching out!

La Perla D' Oriente, Rome, Italy

This bead store is more like what you find here at home.  It is full of beads and treasures from all over the world!  The owner told us that he  has beads made in Syria, China, India, the Czech Republic....and of course Italian beads from Venice.. In addition to the beads and stringing materials they also have the fabulous glass balls that you can see in the pictures.  This bead store is right around the corner from Novita.  Come out the Novita door and turn back to your left headidng towards Piazza Navona.  If you are searching out bead stores be sure to visit this one too!

If you are venturing to the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain....you could wander a little further to find this bead store.  It is about one block off of Via Del Tritone (the larger cross street) and a few blocks from Palazzo del Quirinale.  It is the smallest of the three shops that we found in Rome.  They carried alot of glass beads from Murano.
