The term Millefiori is a combination of the Italian words "mille" (thousand) and "fiori" (flowers). These hand crafted glass pieces are fascinating in their hues and creative engineering.
I love the looks of the various art pieces created using this technique. In my own way to participate in this art form I created this ensemble for you.
The Millefiori beads used in this ensemble show great artistry. I bought them from a glass artist. No two beads in the necklace are alike. The necklace and the matching pieces in the ensemble are wire wrapped and hand crafted meticulously. Like the beads no two Millefiori ensembles are alike.
The predominant colors are blue and aqua intermingled with other primary colors. This color combination makes the ensemble match every style and color dress (office and party wear) and is flattering for any skin tone and age group.
Any one wearing the matched ensemble will surely stand out in a crowd. As a discerning jewelry fan that is probably why you came to Zibbet to look for great hand made pieces.
The wire wrapped necklace has a brass chain and no clasp to help ease of use. The chain is about 26” inches long. It can just be slipped on over a crew neck sweater or a business suit. It is also a statement necklace and holds its own or can be combined with your other jewelry.
The individual beads are about ½’ long and earrings are made of the same beads with a French clip for easy wear. The hand knotted bracelet has smaller Millefiori and crystal beads. Comes with a fair size lobster clasp. It is 7 ½ “ long and should fit an average size wrist.
Care: Cleaning with soap water and handling the glass beads with care will help this necklace set last for a long time.
