General Information

The Magic Mountain. In a Bead.

When thinking of Venice, one may think of Thomas Mann. And from there it is not far to the Magic Mountain and to the fairytale treasures of the Brothers Grimm. A silvery gleam reminding of those treasures is captured in these pearls. No one knows exactly how this is done by the discreet Venetians on the island of Murano. However, the silver foil inside the glass beads is easily recognizable.

Venetian glass.

Even today, the lagoon island of Murano, situated in front of Venice, is an important production site for the precious Venetian glass, which is a valuable export article. The colourful shimmering glass beads are made there according to the best artisan traditions. A small German jewelry workshop in the city of Pforzheim, which is, to the same extent, specialized in high-quality clasps, makes this exceptional Murano jewelry out of the Murano beads. Shape, colour and beauty of these beads are acquired by individual handwork under the flames. Due to its high proportion of aluminum oxide, the glass material used is nearly unbreakable. This is the only information that the manufacturers are prepared to provide. The composition of their parent material or the color formulas remain closely guarded secrets. The only aspect we can explain is the shimmering: broadly speaking, a fine gold or silver foil is laid over the bead blanks, which were separated beforehand from the glass rod and serve as a foundation for a further coloured glass layer. For the so-called water-colored beads a copper-bearing powder mixture is added in a particularly complex process.
