Details

In the 13th century, the glassmakers of Venice were ordered out of the city and onto the small island of Murano for fear that their furnaces would burn the wooden city to the ground. Since then, this small island has produced the world's most exquisitely crafted glass, from the enormous chandeliers hung over the canals to the tiny multi-colored beads used for fine jewelry. The silver and gold leaf beads in this handmade necklace were created in a third-generation Venice glass studio using a Murano technique known as vetro a lume or lampworking, where each bead is formed by fusing rods of glass together over a flame.

"Beautiful"

When paired with the right top and colors it looks wonderful. I honestly did not know if to expect the necklace to have a WOW effect, but it sure did when it arrived. I am satisfied with this purchase. Very pretty.
