PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
Bold necklace combining handcrafted glass beads with amethyst and lapis and echoing the elaborate lamp work designs created on the Venetian island of Murano in the late 19th century. Murano’s reputation as a centre for glassmaking was born when the Venetian Republic, fearing fire and destruction to the city’s mostly wood buildings, ordered glassmakers to move their foundries to Murano in 1291. The skill of Venetian glass blowers continued to be prized across Europe well into the 19th century, with styles adapting to reflect the style of the period. Lamp work refers to the technique of applying fine decoration to the glass by melting glass rods with an oil or spirit lamp. Made exclusively for Museum Selection.
