09 Aug Venetian Glass Beads in our Newport Necklace
Nothing says summer quite like Venetian glass beads. Classy and coastal, our Newport Necklace features brilliant blue and striped Venetian glass beads, freshwater pearl, and a brass pendant. Now you can take a piece of the coast with you everywhere you go!
During a time when travel is less accessible, creating beautiful jewelry with Venetian glass beads instantly transports you to the Amalfi coast. The unique brass pendant brings a touch of boho to the Newport Necklace, merging the Mediterranean with the California coast.
Blue and white Venetian glass pairs perfectly with the basics and elevates any outfit, so you can easily wear the Newport Necklace from day into night.
Quick History of Venetian Glass Beads
Venetian glass originated as early as between the 8th and 13th centuries, with its origins in molded glass for illuminating Roman bath houses. Due to Venice’s location as a center of trade between the East and West, Venetial glass became increasingly popular.
For many centuries, guilds, government, and glassmakers closely guarded the process of making Venitian glass, which fueled its popularity. Venetian glassmaking trade secrets eventually traveled throughout Europe, which created a larger audience for Venetian glass, though it also became more widely available.
Artisan Venetian glass continues to be made in the region… And now we have the opportunity to bring you Venetian glass beads as part of our newest jewelry design!
