Glass, Jewellery shopping in Europe
- Sort by:
Warned that women couldn’t handle working in molten glass, two sisters from Murano, trained as an architect and a jeweller, rose to the challenge – and created Murano’s bestselling line of hand-blown glass statement jewellery. Museum shops around Venice feature their work, including ice-blue waterfall necklaces, traffic-stopping red-dot collars, and signature ‘soap’ necklaces: woven clear glass bubbles that make the wearer look both stylish and freshly scrubbed. There’s also a branch at Ponte San Moisè in San Marco.
Slumped, fused and foiled again: glass goes wild in this experimental co-op gallery of emerging glass designers. Mod glass clocks are the work of studio ringleader Marco Franzato, who also stocks a well-priced selection of necklaces of matte glass discs that look like UFOs orbiting around the neck, and jars of handmade Murano beads embedded with rosebuds or stars that start at €0.40 each.
