A jewel toned emerald green silver lined Venetian Murano heart mounted on a hand hammered solid silver ring and coupled with a jewellers' quality ivory freshwater pearl, in this striking necklace. The filigree spiral is inspired by waves at sea and is soldered shut to fix the coil permanently. The whole pendant measures 43 mm 1 5/8" and hangs from a 450 mm 17 3/4" sterling silver chain. The vintage lipstick case in the last photograph is shown for scale.
Note: The Murano heart included in this design comes in a very wide range of beautiful colours, both bright and more pastel. Please contact me via Folksy or my Facebook page if you would like me to make a bespoke pendant in the colour of your choice.
This pendant is lovingly presented in its own gift box.
About Murano Glass Beads
Glass beads have been made on the island of Murano in the Venetian Lagoon since the 13th Century when glassmaking was moved there to prevent fires breaking out in the city. Many of the techniques used by the artists who make the glass are closely guarded secrets, and it helped to be located on an island where few people were allowed to visit. Nowadays the glass making process is still done by hand and Murano glass is recognised as the finest of its kind in the world. No two Murano beads are alike and many are lined in fine silver or 24 Karat gold to enhance their beauty. Different artists specialize in different bead designs, perfecting their technique over many years, using the simplest of tools. As the saying goes "Good tools are nice, but good hands are better."
