More beautiful than the pictures. They are tiny at 1/4" and a perfect size for girls. Bought them for my 7 year old niece and they look great! Other designs in this size are also very nice.

Workmanship



It all starts with crafting special Millefiori canes with a pattern inside, then cutting them into small pieces and carefully sorting them by hand inside a Murano Glass factory in Venice, Italy. The next step is making a Murano Glass bead by hand under a small flame. Then, while it is still hot, dipping the bead into the tray of tiny Millefiori pieces of appropriate colors to create a unique design and pattern. Lastly, the master reheats the bead again to make sure the Millefiori inclusions are completely infused into its surface, finalizes shaping it, and gradually cools it down. Thus, painstakingly, bead by bead, the artisans in Venice, Italy create Murano Glass Millefiori necklaces, bracelets, earrings, pendants, and other Venetian jewelry pieces with beautiful mosaic patterns. This work has been going on for hundreds of years and today Murano Glass masters still use only basic tools and skills honed by decades of experience in their factories and workshops on Murano island.
