The ultimate symbol of status and power, gold was always held in high regard in Venice. Once Murano Glass artisans learned how to infuse gold into their creations, their fame spread far beyond Venice. The captivating mix of 24K gold with transparent or colorful blown glass has been the secret of Venetian glass masters for centuries, the magic behind their artworks, which exude soft golden glow and sparkle gently in the light. More recently Murano artisans have been creating jewelry from Murano Glass beads lined with gold leaf. To create each bead the master wraps a very thin layer of 24K gold foil around the glass base under a flame, and then adds a layer of clear or colored glass on top. The gold-lined Murano Glass bead is then put into a special annealing camera, after which it is ready to become a pendant, be strung onto a necklace or bracelet, or used to create other jewelry. Enjoy your gold-infused Murano Glass jewelry, knowing that every bead was handcrafted with skill and utmost care in the famous glass workshops of Murano, Italy.
