This gorgeous Venetian glass pendant is a fine example of the most popular and unique Murano glass technique- Millefiori (a thousand flowers)- that has become a trademark of Murano glassmaking. A dazzling array of beautiful flowers appears on this millefiori pendant and creates a festive yet classic and recognizable look. The longer you gaze at it, the more enchanted you feel. This timeless piece of jewelry is exquisite and versatile and will look great suspended from a golden chain. The pendant measures 3/4 inches in diameter and is set in 24 kt gold-plated sterling silver frame. It comes with an attractive velvet pouch and a certificate of authenticity.
Note: This Millefiori pendant is crafted using a complex glass-making technique based on creating designs from multiple tiny glass beads entirely by hand. For this reason the exact placement and color of each tiny bead cannot be repeated exactly, and each pendant will feature slightly different colors. However, the overall look will be very similar to what you see on the product photos.
I love my pendant! It is very vibrant. I love to wear it!

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.
