Workmanship



Infusing silver leaf in Murano Glass has been one of the secrets of Venetian glass-makers for centuries, allowing them to create luminous beautiful glass pieces that shimmer and glow from within. More recently Murano artisans have been creating accessories with Murano Glass beads lined with silver leaf. To create each bead the master wraps a very thin layer of genuine silver leaf around the glass base under a flame, and then puts a layer of clear or colored glass on top. The silver-lined Murano Glass bead is then put into a special annealing camera, after which it is ready to be strung onto a letter opener, cake knife or server, salad spoon, or another accessory, serving piece or a jewelry piece. Enjoy your Murano Glass creation, knowing that every bead was carefully handmade by talented Murano Glass artisans in Venice, Italy.
