Description

IMPORTANT - READ ALL SHIPPING INFORMATION BELOW.

This really spectacular necklace has 4 large green blown glass Murano beads. The focal glass pendant and the other 4 glass multicolored beads are also from Murano but I don't know how they were made. I think it's some kind of complicated handmade millefiori process. They are gorgeous!

All 9 beads were made in a small workshop, owned by the same family for several generations, on the Island of Murano in the Venetian Lagoon in Italy where glass has been made for more than 700 years. There's one woman who carries these glass pieces exclusively in San Diego and she comes here once once a year.

I so love these special glass beads that I bought quite a few to design with. To see the other necklaces I made with these beads, do a search with "Murano" in my shop search field. I've been to Venice twice but that was before I started making jewelry so I didn't go to Murano. Shucks!

The large round green Murano glass beads in the necklace have two different sizes. The multicolored glass beads have three different shapes and sizes. There are 6 small green dyed hematite beads and tiny glass seed beads.

The flat disks at the back are African vinyl, sometimes called record beads, with pewter ends. The large designer clasp is Thai silver (97.5-99% silver as opposed to sterling silver 92.5%) and the small round metal beads are sterling silver.

This really gorgeous necklace is truly one-of-a-kind, and a collector piece for the woman who wants something unusual with real quality components. I had sooooo many compliments the time I wore it. A real knock out!

necklace: approx. 16" (38cm); focal bead: nearly 2" (4.6cm)

Please read my shipping and shop policies before you purchase.

Because of the large beads, I cannot ship this in a small flat rate priority mail box, my usual way of shipping my jewelry. The shipping fees, therefore, are ONLY estimates.

***Please contact me BEFORE purchasing with your US ZIP CODE or COUNTRY for a more accurate estimated shipping fee. For Canada, include postal code. ***Please do NOT purchase before contacting me.***

Because of the delicate nature of the glass, this necklace cannot be combined with another necklace.

I would definitely recommend additional insurance ($5) for this piece as I cannot be responsible for any damages or loss once it enters the US postal system with no insurance. Contact me first BEFORE purchasing for more information.

Be sure to check out my other Murano glass pieces in the section "Contemporary."

Shipping policies

I SHIP FROM SAN DIEGO, CA WITHIN THE US AND INTERNATIONALLY. I usually go to the US post office once a week (I'm a bit disabled), sometimes twice if I have a lot of orders. All shipments will be sent via United States Postal Service (USPS).

I SHIP MOST ITEMS IN A SMALL FLAT RATE PRIORITY MAIL BOX (automatically includes tracking number and $50 insurance in US) unless otherwise noted. Small items will be sent in a small padded envelope. I will combine items for cheaper shipping, but if you are purchasing more than one large item (some of my necklaces are quite large), they won't fit in a small flat rate priority mail box. Contact me first and we can decide how to proceed.

If not small box flat rate Priority Mail, I try to ESTIMATE USPS fees for first class mail but there are many variables (weight, size, distance, packing materials, etc.) If there is more than a $3 difference, I will issue a partial refund or send you an nvoice for the additional cost which I expect you to pay upon receipt. For a more accurate estimate, give me your US ZIP CODE BEFORE purchasing. There is no insurance included for First Class mail, so I cannot be responsible for mishaps unless you purchase insurance (see below.)

***INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING NOTICE*** USPS International Priority Mail changed their policies in January 2017. International Priority Mail will now include a tracking number and includes up to $200 insurance according to the value of merchandise. FIRST CLASS International Mail will be CHEAPER but does not include insurance. IMPORTANT: If you want First Class (not priority mail), you must give me your country of destination BEFORE purchasing. For Canada, include your postal code. I must prepare the package first and weigh it for a more accurate estimate before I go to the post office.

INSURANCE: I don't insure items unless requested. The additional cost of insurance is paid by the buyer before the item is shipped - notify me before you purchase if you want insurance and I’ll let you know the cost.

 I would recommend insurance on pieces around $100 and more. I CANNOT be responsible for damaged or lost goods if you have not purchased insurance.

DAMAGED AND LOST GOODS: I wrap everything well, and am not responsible for damages or loss once a package enters the postal system, especially international shipping without insurance! Priority Mail in the US includes $50 insurance and allows us to track shipments so if something is lost or broken, I'll provide any tracking information, dates or address information as needed. Tracking and insurance is now available for international shipments.

Sometimes an extender can be added to certain types of clasps to make the necklace longer. A small fee may apply. Please contact me with any questions about changes.
