Beaded glass jewelry
Take a peek behind the scenes
Each tiny work of art is handcrafted in our shop in Venice, Cannaregio following the traditional lampworking technique.
Check out the beadmaking process in this short video:
Preserve centuries of traditions and artistry, one tiny handcraft at a time
When you buy one of our products you buy more than just a jewel.
Behind each bead there is a piece of history: the centuries-old knowledge of venetian artisans, that has been passed on and evolved through generations.
How much does shipping cost?
We are a small business, which means we don't have any special arrangement with our courier that would let us lower the shipping prices. Nowadays free shipping seems to be the norm, but the truth is those costs need to be covered somehow, therefore the products' prices get higher. We don't feel like that's fair: if you were to buy more than one item, or if you lived relatively closer to us than someone else, you'd end up paying more than you really owe us.
That's why we keep our shipping costs separate: you can find your country of origin below, and see the corresponding prices.
Italy: 10 euros - free over 50 euros
EU: 20 euros - free over 70 euros
US and Canada: 35 euros - free over 100 euros
Turkey, Russia, China, Japan, India: 55 euros
Everywhere else: 65 euros
How long will it take to get here?
We usually ship your package at most a couple of work days after your purchase (try not to buy your last-minute gift on Friday evening: we work on weekends but couriers don't!). After that it takes 2-5 days for delivery in the EU, US and Canada, but it could take longer for the rest of the world, depending on where you live.
If you're not 100% it'll reach you in time, just send us your address at firstname.lastname@example.org: we'll make an estimation with our courier and let you know a more exact time frame straight away!
Is it original Murano glass?
The Trademark Vetro Artistico® Murano is a proof of origin provided by the Veneto Region in compliance with the law 70, passed on December 23 1994. It certifies that products have been made on the island of Murano, according to glass making tradition. It is managed by Consorzio Promovetro.
Our workshop is located in Venice, in sestiere of Cannaregio , and as such cannot request this proof of origin. We assure, however, that all glass rods used by us to make our beads are made of authentic Murano glass, produced by well-known companies from Murano island, and that the beads' production takes place in its entirety in the island of Venice, by us and other esteemed venetian artisans. The techniques used in glass processing reflect the centuries-old venetian tradition of beadmaking.
