Venetian Murano Bead Jewelry

Venetian and Murano jewelry are mostly made from lamp worked glass beads from Venice where the bead and jewelry makers have impressing skills and eye for detail. Earrings, necklaces, bracelets that are beaded with Venetian and Murano glass beads are intricately designed to perfection.

The process of creating Venetian beaded jewelry embraced the century old tradition of hand-crafting beads. Beautiful and handmade Venetian jewelry reflected much time and effort of the artist because each bead that formed the jewelry is created individually.

Venetian designers have been influencing glass bead makers from around the world for several centuries in creating the distinct Venetian glass style jewelries that are desired throughout the world. The various forms in which Venetian glass beads are found may include Millefiori, lace beads or mosaic. They may be also be finished in spirals, or straight striping, and may be balls, or teardrop shape.

Murano's designs depict stunning works of modern art from glass in form of beaded jewelries. The strength of Murano glass bead jewelry is its assortment of type and class. From its poly-chromatic and golden glazes to the lightness and clearness of its glasses; from the delicateness of the lattice-work to the mosaics, Murano beaded jewelry all represent the beauty and elegance of the wonderful glass material.
