Murano is probably one of the most famous glass names in jewelry. Murano is located in the municipality of Venice in Northern Italy and is a series of islands linked by bridges in the Venetian Lagoon. It is famous for its glass making, particularly lampworking.

Murano’s reputation as a center for glassmaking was born when the Venetian Republic, fearing fire and the destruction of the city’s mostly wooden buildings, ordered glassmakers to move their foundries to Murano in 1291. Murano’s glassmakers were soon numbered among the island’s most prominent citizens. By the 14th century, glassmakers were allowed to wear swords, enjoyed immunity from prosecution by the Venetian state, and found their daughters married into Venice’s most affluent families. While benefiting from certain statutory privileges, glassmakers were forbidden to leave the Republic.

Today, the artisans of Murano still employ centuries-old techniques, crafting everything from contemporary art glass and glass jewelry beads to Murano glass chandeliers and wine stoppers. The oldest Murano glass factory that is still active today is that of Pauly & C. – Compagnia Venezia Murano, founded in 1866.

Venice is so full of history, legend and mystery. When you think Venice, you think about masked balls, sophisticated and elegant dresses.

Here is your chance to have a little bit of that legend by buying a piece of jewellery with original Murano glass! They have a mesmerising shine and the high quality of the glass work is easily visible in the pieces. Murano beads with silver and gold foil have been made using real gold and silver foils inside the glass, giving them a beautiful and classy shine.
