Murano’s special glassblowing process is over a thousand years old, having been re-discovered by the local artisans from the ancient Roman glassware at the end of the first millennium and continuously developed and enhanced upon ever since. Murano was initially settled by the Romans and from the sixth century and in 1291 all the glassmakers in Venice were required to move to Murano. In the following century exports began and the island became famous for Artisan and handmade glass.
This style of glass was copied early in the 1960's and 70's throughout Europe and the height of collectable fashion at the time.

These unloved objects from history are often found chipped and cracked so I am re-purposing them into beautiful and desirable objects to be worn and shown to the world once again. One of the reasons I try and repurpose these unloved antiques is to add my tagline to the products:
"Own a little piece of history."
This is the ultimate in sustainable fashion as I am using objects that would be discarded and added to our ever growing disposable waste in the world.
