Venitian Glass

Back to Venice which is famous for its Murano glass - nowadays you need to be careful that you are not buying cheap imitations from China - you need to look for the Murano glass stamp.  Generally though the price is a big clue! Here are some of the lovely items you can buy:-

Fabulous handmade shells - I adore these!



And the mushrooms are so cute too!  
I have these at home.
A lovely large heart.

Lovely millefiori pendants.

Fabulous fish!

Hearts and cherries.

Some of the glass bead jewellery you can buy.

A lovely modern style necklace by Le Perle.
I brought some of these home. 

And some of their other designs.


My purchases!
No surprise a pink necklace.


Here you can see the shimmer and patterns
in the glass.




And I had to have this lovely red one!
