Murano Glass Jewelry
Murano is the name of a small island near Venice. Its status as a hub for glassmaking
was born from the Venetian Republic in 1291, which fearing fire and destruction
to the city’s wooden buildings, ordered glassmakers to move their foundries
to the distant island. Soon after, Murano's glassmakers became Venice’s most
affluent and important citizens.
The method behind Murano Glass making consists of using the lampworking technique.
The glass is prepared from silica, which becomes runny at high temperatures, as
it cools it passes from a liquid to a solid state, this period provides a window
when the glass is soft enough to be manipulated and shaped.
