These little charms are based on the Russian matryoshka dolls. Also known as nesting dolls, they're based on art depicting Russian peasant girls and they were first exhibited at the 1900 Paris Expo. I paired them with millefiori coin beads. Millefiori, meaning "thousand flowers" in Italian, describes a method of glasswork involving bound thin glass rods. When melted together under heat, the glass forms a flower shape that is then cooled and cut. You can read more about
