A new series of blown authentic Murano Glass beads are made using a special, labor intensive technique that is applied to the bead after they are blown and annealed.
The colors are an earthy brown, mixed with white.
The effect is known as battuto in Muranese. It is much like the old chevron beads where the mosaico canes were ground to reveal the colors underneath.
This new series of colors were designed by Benda and the glassblower.
Size is approximately 65mm in length and about 25mm in diameter. Size and shape and exact shading vary as these are completely handmade.
The hole size is approximately 4mm and runs top to bottom.
You will receive one bead.
