This versatile Murano necklace features a contemporary-looking quadrilateral pendant in the shades of tender rose and pink, artfully arranged in a mosaic pattern using centuries-old Millefiori glass-making technique. Millefiori (or Murrina) technique was invented in antiquity and has been re-discovered by Venetian glass artisans, who have been crafting unique Millefiori jewelry and art glass pieces for high society women from around the world. Today any woman can afford this trendy Millefiori necklace handcrafted by acclaimed Murano Glass masters exactly the same way as in ancient times. It is a beautiful jewelry accent that can be worn every day or for special occasions, and creates a look that is uniquely feminine, elegant, and bold. This is a perfect gift for a stylish woman who appreciates Venetian art and fine Murano craftsmanship.
  • Measurements: The cord is 26 inches in length and the pendant measures about 2-1/2 by 1-1/8 inches and is 3/16 inch thick.
  • The necklace comes with an attractive velvet pouch and a certificate of authenticity.
  • Because each Murano Glass piece is a unique work of art made by hand, and due to the specifics of Millefiori technique, the patterns can never be repeated exactly and slight variations of colors are possible. The look of the pendant, however, will be very similar to what is shown in the photos.

Workmanship



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.
