Dazzling and exquisite, this Murano Glass Charm Bead features a rich layer of 925 sterling silver accented with deep aqua and sparkly copper waves. The real silver infused in the bead creates the "glow from within" effect and makes this Venetian bead instantly add style and chic to any charm bracelet or necklace. From their humble beginnings as currency to their modern appeal as jewelry, delicate Murano Glass beads have a long history and wide fame, yet the process of their creation changed little over the centuries. Each bead is created and decorated entirely by hand using open flame and only basic instruments with skill and precision unique to Murano Glass artisans. Best of all, the luxurious design of this bead will never get old, while its rich color and shiny silver glow will not fade over time.
Measurements: This charm bead has rondelle shape and measures 1-1/8 inch in diameter and just under 1/2 inch in height. The diameter of the bead opening is 3/16 inch or 4 mm. The framing of the opening is made in solid 925 Sterling Silver. The words "Murano Italy" are etched in the silver frame, along with the standard 925 Sterling Silver mark. The bead comes with an attractive velvet pouch and the certificate of authenticity.
This Murano Glass charm bead is compatible with Pandora, Chamilia, Biagi, Troll and other interchangeable bead systems.
Because each charm bead is made by hand, no two beads are exactly the same, and slight variations of colors and patterns are possible.
More pretty than a photo.

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.
