Handcrafted in Italy This beautifully crafted glass necklace 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." 18" long.
