The glow of fine Murano seed beads tied into elegant strands make this Murano Glass necklace quite different from other jewelry you've seen before. The mix of smooth round and edgy tube-shaped beads infused with genuine silver foil create glamorous look, a great way to remember the beauty of Venice. Twist the necklace gently before closing the lock for more breathtaking effect.

Murano's tradition of crafting seed beads to make jewelry and decorate clothing is centuries-old. In the first half of the 20th century crafting jewelry from seed beads was the primary occupation of Venetian women, and they often did it in Venetian courtyards while watching their kids play. These days most top "haute couture" designers still use Murano's famous seed beads in their fine creations.

We also recommend the matching Gloriosa 12 Strand Bracelet to complete the look.

Measurements: The necklace has 12 strands of seed beads (6 black and 6 gold ones) and measures 20 inches in length.

This Murano Seed Bead Necklace comes with the velvet pouch and the certificate of authenticity.

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.
