Perla di Murano - production techniques and creation names.

Perla di Murano comes in all sorts of shapes and are produced in the most wonderful colors of glass by Murano Glass Artists since 1291 and also before that. Because they are handmade and not factory produced they can differ a little bit though they look as equal. The edges of the new Murano Glass art beads are round, not sharp edged and they look finished all over the surfaces. If there are patterns on the surface of the beads you can feel them.


I analyse the beads and tell about the art symbols that can be seen in Murano Glass Art beads and told about them, because I am an art teacher;)

Lampwork and Blown Glass Perla di Murano.

There are different ways to make glass beads, but in areas of Venice and on Murano the glass art masters today often use lampwork and sometimes make blown Venice Perla or Perla di Murano and seldom using fusing equal parts of glass together heating the parts and melting them together. Hereby the parts can be a bit out of position and look edgy, though you also find these kinds of Murano vintage beads, because of the history durings wars, where Glass art makers from Murano were forbitten to produce glass art. Also vintage Murano glass art beads do have unequal surfaces or are without minerals, because Murano glass art makers also used to produce these kinds of glass beads during and after wars, where they had to get established again. So you will still find these kinds of beads as Murano vintage beads.

Lampwork and blown Glass Perla di Murano nowadays never have surface with parts out of position, they only have glass waved as patterns on the surface of the beads and are maid as one whole piece, because real Murano glass art makers can after wars produce as they like to and let their creative spirit come through as they difine the art of Murano master glass art pieces.

Lampwork Perla di Murano nowadays is where the Perla di Murano are done rolling the glass onto a copper mandrel in the flame of a lamp.


Blown Perla di Murano are only the beads made in a real Murano glass furnace using the technique filigrana, where the glass art master blows into a tube to create the Murano glass often used for other Murano glass creations than Perla di Murano, though there are Murano jewelry, where the Perla di Murano are still blown as Murano glass art makers used to do  it in between wars.

Blown glass creations are hollow inside, where Perla di Murano using lampwork technique not are beside the whole through the Perla di Murano.


Kanobi®Jewelry Murano Vintage Sommerso and dotted beads a la Agate's.


Sommerso Perla di Murano.

Sommerso Venetian Perla di Murano are named after the technique which submerges fragments of different colors into the clear crystal glass as a prism transforming the light and colors of the sun (above).


Aventurine Perla di Murano.

Aventurine is created using sparkling copper in many of crystal glass Perla di Murano. Particles of copper and other minerals attach to each other, when the glass cools as the basics of the Earth.

The different minerals get different colors depending on how they are used. Copper cools becoming green, cobalt gets blue, tin makes a milky white and gold results in red. So in that perspective the Perla di Murano are outstanding masterpieces managing the minerals cooling proces to perfection;)

Millefiori Perla di Murano (thousand flowers beads).

They look as there are a thousand flowers of mosaic in the millefiori Perla di Murano. They are made by using a small glass ball of clear or colored transparent glass. Then the glass ball is rolled over small slices of Murrines or they are placed on the glass ball (a crystal glass tube created as a pattern and cut in equal slices called Murina of a cane, where many slices of different canes are called Murrines).


Kanobi®Jewelry Murano Perla di Millefiori .

The Perla di Murano artist rotates the glass ball while heating the bead until the murrine slices are integrated into the Perla di Murano as Millefiori. Originally they are transformed by Murano glass art makers from Venetian Murano Trade or Skunk Beads, that were often dotted beads transformed from Roman's and earlier from Egypt's, whereas Murano art makers were better to do the glass art work and they became Millefiori Perla di Murano as the blossom of the soul created both as tradebeads, but also as jewelry beads;)

Fiorato Perla di Murano (Wedding Cake Beads).

Perla di Murano are hand decorated with “fiorato” small flowers. The Perla di Murano can be made in any technique, but on the outside of the Perla di Murano, there will be drawn small flowers mostly using molten stringers of pink colored glass in different tones from white to pink looking like a rose as you see it in vintage Perla di Murano below.

Often there is also decoration on the outside of the Perla di Murano painted with aventurine minerals as the center of the globe, Equator line, together with waves of the water as life is and dots in different colors and often in a circle of five blueish dots as the whole and one dot in the center of the circle in yellow as the North, South, East and West of the Globe and Center or five al in al as one. The yellow dot in center look's like a yolk or the sun. Normally it is drawn twice.


The hole through the Wedding Cake beads is the air to The Fiorato Perla di Murano and the five (fish) is The Whole.
