This Murano glass bracelet continues the venerable tradition of Murano Art Glass that goes centuries back to the times of almighty Venetian Empire. Using the lampworking technique where glass is melted under torchlight and beads are shaped and decorated by hand, the glass masters created this unique bracelet that reflects the glamour of Venice and represents every stylish woman's dream.
Measurements: The bracelet measures 6 1/2 inches in length and has elegant extender chain that extends it up to 8 inches. The large center bead is saucer-shaped and measures 7/8 inch in diameter. The smaller beads are about 1/2 inch in diameter.
Because each Murano Glass piece is a unique work of art made by hand, some variations of colors and patterns are possible.
Infusing silver leaf in Murano Glass has been one of the secrets of Venetian glass-makers for centuries, allowing them to create luminous beautiful glass pieces that shimmer and glow from within. More recently Murano artisans have been creating jewelry with Murano Glass beads lined with silver leaf. To create each bead the master wraps a very thin layer of genuine silver leaf around the glass base under a flame, and then puts a layer of clear or colored glass on top. The silver-lined Murano Glass bead is then put into a special annealing camera, after which it is ready to be strung onto a necklace, a bracelet, or used to create earrings, or another jewelry piece. Enjoy your Murano Glass jewelry creation, knowing that every bead was carefully handmade by talented Murano Glass artisans in Venice, Italy.
