Blue Daisy Leaf pendant is a part of Daisy Collection. The collection showcases a unique example of Millefiori technique. This glassmaking technique was used in the Roman times, then the secret to it was lost, and later re-discovered in Murano in the 15th century. To produce the millefiori decoration Murano glassmakers use a short metal rod with a small amount of heated glass at its end, which is then repeatedly recolored and dipped into a star-shaped mold. At the end two pieces of such glass are fused together and thinned out to create the famous millefiori pattern. The result is a remarkable mix of vivid colors and beautiful flower-like shapes that is artful, attractive and inimitable.

Because each item is a unique work of art made by hand, slight variations of colors and patterns are possible.

Workmanship



The technique of fusing together small colored fragments of glass dates all the way back to Ancient Egypt and Rome. After the fall of Rome, having been lost for centuries, this intricate technique was reinvented by Murano glass masters in the 15th century, and given new life and worldwide fame. While this technique is called "Murrine" on Murano island, outside of Venice it was dubbed "Millefiori", or "a thousand flowers" for its resemblance to a blossoming meadow.
A Millefiori design starts with the rods of different colors, each made by stretching a blob of glass into a cane. These canes are then cut into small segments, and the segments are carefully arranged by hand into a pattern that fits within a desired shape. Finally, the resulting arrangement is put into a special furnace where the tiny glass pieces are carefully fused together in high heat, and then gradually cooled off. This is how Murano masters create their famous Millefiori pendants, earrings, cufflinks, pill boxes, paperweights and many other beautiful and unique Millefiori jewelry pieces that are instantly recognized and valued for their artistic appeal and fine craftsmanship. Enjoy your Murano Glass jewelry creation, knowing that it was carefully handmade by talented Murano Glass artisans in Venice, Italy.
