The talented Murano Glass masters of Venice were always inspired by the artistic trends from around the world. Being artists rather than mere artisans, they have enriched their works with the new and controversial concepts that have appeared in art over the centuries. Taking the lead from the Catalan Modernista movement in contemporary art, and its main figures, such as Antonio Gaudi, Murano masters handcrafted this pendant, which showcases bright colors accented with gold and arranged in a mosaic-like fashion for a look that is at once elegant and bold. This Murano Glass pendant is a wearable work of art and a fine accent for any outfit, whether rich and extravagant or plain and simple.Measurements: This Murano Glass pendant has square shape and measures approximately 1.5 x 1.5 inches.The pendant comes with a high-quality velvet pouch and the certificate of authenticity.This pendant was crafted by hand under an open flame in a traditional glassmaking workshop on Murano island in Venice. Because each pendant is crafted by hand one-at-a-time, no two are ever the same. Slight variations of sizes, colors and patterns are possible and confirm that this in fact is authentic Murano Glass.
Lampworking technique of glass-making, which dates back to ancient Egypt, was revived by Murano glass artisans around the fourteenth century. This technique is based on heating up a blob of glass under a small flame from a lamp or a torch until it reaches malleable state, then blowing and using simple tools or just hands to create various forms and designs. Lampworking allows the artisan's creativity to blossom, as copper sparkles, various minerals, and pieces of glass cane are fused together in this process to create rich colors and imaginative patterns that are always unique. Murano Glass masters often use lampworking method to create small jewelry, such as pendants, earrings, or rings, as well as keychains, barrettes, pillboxes, and figurines.
