Murano glass necklace with Mermaid blown in sea water color, very clear, and 16 threads of original Venetian seed beads, from the 1960s, handcrafted by hand using special needles.
The mermaid is about 10 cm high and is created with the lampwork technique by applying glass to the mouth of a metal tube, the blowpipe, and then blowing and shaping the pearl to give it the desired shape.
Conteria beads were among the most produced in Murano in the past and among the most exported anywhere in the world. Unfortunately they have not been produced in Murano for about 35 years, so being able to work with the original ones again is a great privilege. A few lucky people still have some stock and I would like to thank IncantoMurano here for having made available theirs for the creation of this necklace.
Murano Glass Necklace length about 88cm
