This elegant round pendant features Murano's famous Millefiori technique in rich colors and beautiful floral patterns. Millefiori (a thousand flowers) is a technique known to Murano masters since antiquity, where lots of small round pieces of glass with stylized flower designs inside are fused together for an effect reminiscent of beautiful ancient mosaics. The result is a modern eye-catching design of flowers in rich shades of blue, yellow and white and rare matte finish, which make this Murano pendant a wonderful gift for a woman who values Venetian artistry and fine Murano craftsmanship.
Measurements: This Murano Glass pendant has a slightly convex shape and measures 2 1/4 inches in diameter. The hole measures 1/2 inch in diameter. The pendant is created by famous Murano glass artists and comes with an attractive velvet pouch, an attached authenticity sticker of official Murano Glass Consortium on the back, as well as the certificate of authenticity.

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

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.
