How to Blow Your Own Beads!

Watch as our bead makers blown beads on the torch. This is an altogether different method than our beads in the canna production. This is a more artistic production, with multi-colors of canes making varied colored designs. Truly no two ever exactly alike.  Our Boro Glass beads are made in this tradition as are many of our Christmas Ornaments, like the blown Hearts, and wine bottle stoppers.

Fusing Canes to Blow BeadsWith our production in canna it is very precise, rows of canes are laid down and fused together, the canes produce very straight lines, which we can change by twisting as they are blown, making different shapes, but the canes essentially maintain their design form. These beads are from the canna method, you can see how the lines are maintained, twisted but still very precise.


Each of the blown beads is annealed for strength and to prevent breakage. They make beautiful Venetian Jewelry and Decorations. Just hang one in your window and enjoy!

    That’s a wonderful method of creating Murano glass beads with multicolor finishes. It requires a wealth of experience and skill to come up with such precise lines. Your blown bead collection is very spectacular. Kudos to you!

      Thanks, We are very lucky to have such great artisans who live and work in #Murano. Even better that they are willing to let us work with them on designs. And willing to try new things. Collaboration is key throughout our business from supplier through to our customers and a huge part of our success.
