Modern original Venetian glass necklace.
Modern abstract millefiori glass heart necklace. Millefiori is Italian for a thousand flowers. This glass is made with small pieces of cut glass canes that can look like flowers, these small pieces are fused together to make bigger patterns. The circles and colours in this heart really remind me of some beautiful Australian indigenous art, a happy coincidence.
The length of the necklace is 41cm. The heart hangs down a further 5cm.
This necklace has 3 strands, 2 are thin black leather and 1 is hand beaded with Swarovski crystals and tiny glass beads. The heart is attached to the necklace with a hand beaded bail. The clasp is sterling silver. The clasp is not stamped 925 but I have checked with the supplier and it is cast sterling silver. I have tried to buy a clasp like this that is stamped but the 2 main suppliers where I can buy it only have this type and both confirm it is cast sterling silver.
Murano glass is handcrafted by artisans on the island of Murano, off the coast of Venice, Italy.
