Handcrafted in Italy This beautifully crafted glass bracelet is made of Venetian glass, produced on the island of Murano near Venice, Italy. Venetian glassmaking was documented as early as 982 A.D., a tradition of over a thousand years. Artisans fashion each bead individually from layers of molten glass fused around a copper wire held over a flame. No two beads are ever alike. This elegant bracelet features 16 hand blown 8mm glass beads on a memory wire bracelet with clear glass beads.
