Avventurina or (Aventurine in English) first mentioned in a document dating from 1614 as “a kind of stone with gilt stars inside”, at which point it already mesmerized people with the unusual and attractive look. The technique owes its name to the fact that its discovery happened by chance thanks to a lucky coincidence when a glass artisan is said to have accidentally dropped some metal shavings into the glass mixture. Italians say it happened “all’avventura”, which in Italian means “by chance”.

Description

Necklace, graduating beads . Antique rose gold fiorato, which stems from the Italian word fiore [flower], an extremely elaborated decoration enchanted by a gold 24k layer, small relief bichrome scattered tiny bud with floral decor made of our 19th-century Murano glass cane collection. since the beginning, the production of beads was related to Venice island mostly in the sestiere of Cannaregio. this mastery art passed down from mother to daughter,  have created hand-formed glass of such beauty and technique, it’s surpassed historical into legendary. Nuptial, ceremony necklace rafted under the flame, this highly-specialized art form allows the glass masters to create exquisite vette [raised] floral designs, resulting in beads of unparalleled beauty.

Many refer to these intricate works of art as “wedding cake beads” as it’s an apt description for these fanciful beads, with their “icing” of frills and flowers, as well as their resemblance to bridal bouquets with concentric rows of coloured flowers. We think it’s a befitting name as they are the perfect marriage of art and style.
