What to expect

Over time, the Venetian glass beads became a status symbol and a sign of prestige. This tradition, which has been passed on for thousands of years, is still alive nowadays.

You will be taken to an artisan workshop, where the glass comes to life through the hands of a skilled Venetian artist. Using a flame, the artisan will transform this material into unique pieces of jewelry right in front of you. Glass beads will be lampworked into wonderful necklaces and earrings, featuring sophisticated color palettes in a variety of shapes, which shows how this craftsmanship has been refined over time while using the same old materials.

Under the supervision of an artisan master, you will forge your first bead, which will be given to you or delivered to your home at the end of the workshop. A glass master will also illustrate the story of glass beads since its inception. This is an extraordinary opportunity to discover the magic of Murano glass, a material that is as versatile and malleable, as it is resistant to the passage of time and tides.
