Handcraft

Every bead is created patiently one by one; every design has a different process of making, combinations of colours, shapes and sizes using the last stocks of a glass bead no longer in production to create jewellery.

Antique Murano Glass Cane

Antique Murano cane of glass collection from early 19th Century. Salvatore is coming from a family that features hundreds of years of tradition in glass art, using only antique Murano glass, accepting the challenge of its technical, chemical characteristics that make it not the easiest to use. Other types of glass canes would be easier to use, but would never give the same colours and effects.

Murrine

The glass section obtained by slicing every 2/3mm of the cane. The core of cane is decorated by different shapes, design and colours, today some shapes are rare as the cane are not produced anymore. Murrines are loved worldwide.
