The birth of “Murrina Jewellery"

Murrina Glass is obtained by a glass stick, entirely handmade using a particular technique, which is known only on the island of Murano and includes several passages and overlaps, and it’s made with exclusively artisan techniques, which give the glass a cylindrical shape, after marbling it several times on a metallic surface, called “ bronzìn”.

By dipping this into different pots of molten Murano glass, the volume of the mass increases and it is made up of layers of different colored glasses.

Nowadays only two firms in the world can realize the Venetian Murrina glass stick, by exerting a longitudinal depression into it with a particular instrument, until the hollow becomes closed;  then they dip the glass again into a particular instrument, called “crogiolo”. In this way they achieve a real Venetian Murrina glass stick. However, they are able to satisfy just a small part of the innumerable requests. This is because of the difficulty in finding highly specialized staff, who knows this particular technique, and the lack of young and motivated Murano master glass-makers.
That’s why it’s getting harder  and harder to find real handmade Venetian Murrina Glass articles. In this picture the cylinder (called “pastòn”) has been attached to the free end of a smaller stick, already arranged with a small quantity of glass.
The Venetian glass makers walk in opposite directions, pulling out the Murano Glass into a long fine rod of the required diameter just with the help of their eyes and their experience. The Millefiori rods then are cut in small millefiori beads


Murrina sticks : The artist then places the millefiori beads (small cut pieces of the rods) into a frames in a unique design. Each piece of millefiori glass jewelry is still made by hand and thus no two pieces are exactly alike.

Murrina sticks cut :  The frames with the millefiori design then are cooked in a glass oven at temperatures secrets.
All the millefiori designs are then polished and made round.
Then the production of the Millefiori Jewelry starts.
Millefiori pendants in silver and gold, millefiori earrings, millefiori key chains, millefiori watches, millefiori plates, millefiori pins, pill holders, and more are made with this ancient way to use the Murano glass.
