The first news about the Murano glass seed beads, found in ancient documents as a precious exchange and export goods, dates back to the fifteenth century when they were used in embroidery, jewelry and various compositions. Having become a rare good, they are still made in Murano by the legendary Pearls-makers of the island, custodians of this ancient tradition in which very thin perforated “canes” of monochrome or transparent Murano glass with gold and silver leaf, are cut into equal sizes to their very small diameter.
Characterized by a faint and sensual brightness when worn alone, Sottile Necklace in Murano seed beads becomes special when accompanied by one of the many unique original Murano glass pendants that you can find in this website.
