Murano glass jewellery Venice – What are Murano beads?
Murano glass beads have long been synonymous with murano island and the finest and most beautiful of handmade beads in the world. Using traditions and techniques that have been passed down over centuries, glass artisan beadmakers use coloured glass rods to create colourful designs that inspire jewelry makers everywhere. Authentic Murano glass beads use the special Effetre glass cane, famous for its quality to add the stunning colours to the glass base.
Since 1291, Murano glassmakers have refined technologies for producing different types of beads with different glass effects such as crystalline glass, enamelled glass (smalto), glass with threads of gold (aventurine), multicolored glass (millefiori), milk glass (lattimo) and imitation gemstones made of glass. Theses beads are exclusive and due to being hand made, no two will be exactly the same.
