This delightful Murano glass bird is created from a multicolored molten glass sphere that is decorated, according to the creativity of the artist, by placing precious gold leaf on its surface. The glass blowing technique then gives shape to the small sculpture, highlighting the always different gradients and patterns that make each of this artworks one-of-a-kind.
The creations from this Collection are made by Maestro Giorgio Bruno, a Murano's artist that combines the glass blowing technique with the versatility of lampworking, expressing a personal mixed technique that allows him to bring to life these extraordinary sculptures.

We are a small family business designing and creating jewelry with authentic Murano Glass beads. All our products are handmade by us and by other esteemed artisans in Venice, using only original Murano glass produced on the island of Murano.
When you buy one of our products, you buy more than just a jewel: the centuries of artistry, beauty and charm of Venice are captured in each of our handcrafted beads, and we'll make sure that you'll carry with you part of Venice's artistic legacy and of its unmistakable allure.
Our beads are crafted following the traditional lampworking technique, an art that goes back to at least the 17th century. It requires the use of a small burner to melt coloured glass canne - sticks - over a copper stick, where it is shaped using brass pliers. Various decorating techniques are then used to make each bead a unique work of art.
