Make your day a little brighter and more meaningful with this elegant finely crafted Murano Glass Initial Pendant. Ancient Millefiori glass-making technique has been carefully preserved on Murano Island in Venice by generations of venerable Murano Glass master artisans. This Millefiori Initial Letter Pendant was handmade by fusing together tiny pieces of colorful glass mosaics under a small flame. This pendant is a beautiful and unique gift that adds a lovely accent to any outfit and is an instant conversation starter.
  • Measurements: The initial letter pendant measures about 1 inch in height and 3/4 inch across in its widest part.
  • This pendant comes with an attractive velvet pouch and a certificate of authenticity.
  • Because each item is a unique work of art made by hand, and due to the specific Millefiori glass-making process, no two letter pendants are exactly alike. Each pendant will sport a fun multicolor look but will be made up of Millefiori pieces of different colors and patterns. These slight variations of colors and patterns are not a defect but a defining feature of authentic Murano Glass.

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.
