Make Your Wardrobe Timeless with Murano Glass Jewelry
For a great Made in Italy gift idea, look no further than Murano Glass jewelry!
Artisans in Murano have used centuries-old techniques to create a stunning array of glass items, including beautiful and timeless jewelry made with 'murrine'. A 'murrina' is a glass cane (long rods of glass) with colored patterns that are revealed when cut in cross-sections. Murrine can be made with many different designs, but the 'millefiori' is definitely the most popular.
The 'murrina' technique first appeared in the Middleeast more than 4,000 years ago and was later revived by Venetian glassmakers in Murano in the early 16th century. The 'maestri vetrai' layer different colors of molten glass around a core, then they heat them and stretch them into a rod. When the rod cools down, they slice it into cross-sections of desired thickness and each slice reveals the same pattern in cross-section.
The venetian galss items in our shop are 100% Made in Italy and include a variety of options, including beautiful 'murrine': indulge in a pair of earrings or make your outfit stand out with a pendant made of 'millefiori' multicolored glass.
With these options, you can add a piece of Venetian history to any outfit!
