These necklaces are created from lampwork glass handmade either in Venice or on the island of Murano. The very finest of glass beads they catch the light and reflect their three dimentional properties. Each bead is made by hand, therefore no two are exactly alike. Glassmaking in Venice goes back to the days of Marco Polo. The exterior gold foil is subject to wear and tear over time and exposure to oils and chemicals. This is not a defect, just how gold reacts to these conditions.
