The current Viana beads - hollow, and which in the past were still much lighter - are direct descendants of the Greek, Phoenician, Roman and Etruscan beads, the latter being the ones that most resemble those of today. The granulation or sprinkles and the surrounding filigree were nothing more than a mere adornment, as what always prevailed was its spherical and rounded shape. The beaded necklace was purchased by Viana's wife before the much-desired cord. It was often bought on an account by account at the expense of the little savings of these young women, usually from the sale of eggs or the chicken trade.
