This gorgeous necklace features black and pink Murano Glass "Wedding Cake" Beads from Italy. The Italian name for them is Fiorato. The term wedding cake beads stems from the way the pink, blue, yellow and sparkling gold aventurine decorations were added to the black beads, like icing on a wedding cake. These handmade beads have glittering bands and swirling lines with pink and blue flowers. There are additional glass accent beads in between the 14mm wedding cake beads, and they are all knotted on black silk. It is a long necklace that you can easily slip over your head or use the beautiful gold pearl clasp. The necklace is in perfect condition, it is new/old stock from a closed jewelry store. It still has the original tags.
Venetian Murano art glass is hand crafted in Italy by glass artists considered among the world’s finest. Murano is the heart of Italian glassmaking. It is a small island off Venice to which glass makers were banished in the late 13th century to ensure that their furnaces would not catch the city of Venice on fire.
