Fall in love with this stylish diamond-shaped Murano Glass pendant handcrafted by famous Venetian artisans on Murano Island. The pendant owes its unique look and gorgeous colors to the skillful use of world-famous Millefiori technique. Known as far back as ancient Egypt and perfected by Murano's talented artisans in the middle ages, Millefiori technique is a labor-intensive manual glass-making process. The artisans first create thin rods with a special design inside, then cut still hot glass rods into tiny mosaic pieces, and finally assemble those pieces into patterns and fuse them together in special furnaces. The result is an explosion of colors and unique mosaic patterns, eye-catching, bold and feminine at once. This Millefiori pendant makes a great Venetian accent for a casual day or a dressy outing and is a wonderful gift for women of all ages.
Measurements: The pendant measures 1 3/4 x 1 3/4 inches and has slightly convex shape. It comes with an attractive velvet pouch, and the certificate of authenticity. The special sticker of the official Murano Glass Consortium, further proving the authenticity of this product, is attached to the back of the pendant.

Because each Murano Glass piece is a unique work of art made by hand, slight variations of colors and patterns are possible.

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.
