The Beauty & Craftsmanship Of Murano Glass

I became a big fan of Venetian glass when I visited Italy ten years ago. I was amazed by all the beautiful things that could be made out of glass by these craftsmen.

Recently I saw a post on my friend Colin's blog, Sexy Legs and Body. It had to do with Murano Glass. I was so amazed by all the magnificent products that they have created. I had to check out their site. I'm so glad that I did.

These stunning glass creations are produced through excellent craftsmanship on a small island north of Venice. The glassmakers of Murano became the island's most prominent citizens. They also became highly respected in the Venetian Republic. Murano glass has been revered around the globe for centuries. It's so easy to see why customers around the world for generations have craved Murano glass.

I was looking through their products when I saw this beautiful pair of black Christina earrings. They are so beautiful and elegant. These earrings would look fantastic with pretty much anything in a woman's wardrobe. Visit Murano glass earrings to see this pair and all their other wonderful earrings.


I also love this Ipanema necklace. There is a pretty colored large bead in the center which is surrounded by chandelier cut beads and floral beads around that. Visit
Murano glass necklaces to see this necklace and all their other fantasic necklaces.



They don't only make jewelry, but also a variety of other products. They have glass animals, bowls, vases and so much more. I thought I would share a few of the other items they make that I adore.

Here is a red/blue/amber Murano glass bottle:



Here is a set of blue/gold lovebirds:



I hope you've enjoyed this look at the incredible world of Murano glass. I had a lot of fun putting this post together. Please check out their website. Maybe you'll feel like indulging yourself in one of their brilliant glass creations. I'm sure you won't be sorry. So which of their products do you really like? What would you buy if you were going to buy? Let me know what you think.
