A little Island off the coast of Italy ♥

7 Mar

Murano & Burano are the most beautiful quaint islands off the coast of Venezia, Italie. Study Abroad at Euromed has brought me closer to the little inspirations I’ve always wanted to see up close and personal. Nonetheless, I was in Italy for Le Carnevale di Venezia about 3 weeks ago for a weekend and had the opportunity to go the the family owned glass factory that makes the authentic Murano glass jewelry, one of the many things Venice is known for. Glass making has been has been perfected for centuries in Venice…witnessing the art of blowing glass, making color, and and the caneworking technique was phenomenal. Extremely tourist-y? Yeah a bit so. But check the photos below, they were totally worth it flipping my tourist card.

These two are favorites πŸ˜‰

The stamp authenticates glass jewelry from Murano. Also, see that small purple bead. When I spotted it, I wanted it the necklace immediately! Why? It gives the necklace so much character and is another testament to the fact that the beads were hand strung.
