The Glass Beads of Murano, necklaces of perfection!In 1605 the glassblowers of Murano succeeded in coloring crystals, without compromising the translucency.
Today, you can buy necklaces and pendants created by artisans of the craft who still know how to work the glass as the Masters of Murano to give you splendid and of course unique objects.
In Venice there are as many stores selling strands of beads as stores selling masks.
As a result, locating the true craftsman, the genuine artists, whose works will sometimes be even less expensive than those of the boutiques catering to tourists, is not always obvious.
Mentioned below, are the stores where you will find not only the nicest objects but also the most unique beads made in right before your eyes in Venice and not someplace in China.
