|What is Murano Glass:
Murano Glass is a soda ash glass manufactured in Murano,
Located off the shore of Venice, Italy, Murano has been
a commercial port since as far back as the 7th century.
By the 10th century, the city had become well known for
its glassmakers, who created unique Murano glass.
The process of making Murano glass sculpture is rather
complex. Most Murano glass art is made using the lampworking
technique. The glass is made from silica (sand), which
becomes liquid at high temperatures. As the glass passes
from a liquid to a solid state, there is a point when
the glass is soft, allowing the artisan to shape the material
before it hardens completely.
We import murano glass canes material from Venice for
make our murano glass beads, murano glass pendants and
murano glass crafts. and we purchase same composition & formulation as murano glass canes material from
China glass material manufacturers also.
Murano glass beads and murano style material glass
beads became known worldwide.
ChinaBead.com experienced crafters and glass
workers produce our murano glass beads, murano glass
pendants using the same techniques as were used in the
11th Century, Venice murano glass.
Murano Glass beads are made of glass which is about
70% silica (sand)., murano glass beads are made from
a type of glass known as soda glass with a COE of 90
degrees which is a measurement of the expansion in heating
and cooling. The murano glass beads start with glass
rods which were made in Murano.
Each our muano glass bead is entirely handmade using
murano glass canes and working over a torch. we use
24kt gold foil/leaves and 925 sterling silver foil/leaves
inside the glass in solid and translucent colors to
produce the color effects.
