This necklace is composed of 20 hand cut Murano glass cubes of different sizes and of gilded metal tube beads (Nickel free – Made in Italy) of different lengths all knotted on a polyester yarn. Each cube (1cmx1cm- 0.4 in.x0.4 in.) consists of 2 transparent glass layers and a gold leaf in the middle. A particular work carried out on the glass pieces resulted in softening and rounding the glass stone edges while keeping their “raw” appearance. The gilded metal lobster clasp includes a chain (4 cm – 0.4 in.) allowing to adjust the necklace length (Nickel free – Made in Italy).
Length: 45cm (17.7 in.) – Weight: 50g (1.8 oz)
The ORO collection: when glass becomes gold
Their fascination with gold pushed the Venetians to look for any surface, any material able to be gilded. A gold leaf embedded in a transparent glass cube with irregular outlines. The contrast between precious metal and its natural shell. Gold is twinkling when turning, is reflected or just disappearing such as the shimmering light on the water.
