About

Authentic glass jewelry, traditionally handcrafted in Venice

Miani Venetian Jewelry is a small artisan workshop in Venice, in the Sestiere of Cannaregio.

My name is Nicola Miani, and though fairly new to the world of glass-making – it was 2009 when I opened our first glass shop with my sister, in Ghetto Novo – my family and I are no strangers to handcrafting. My grandfather, my parents, my sister and I all experimented with different techniques and crafts, and I ended up settling on glass and jewelry making.

I believe that handmade is worth the effort and that nothing made industrially will ever compare. That's why in our Etsy shop you’ll find only Venetian glass jewelry designed and assembled by us, using original Murano glass beads crafted by my sister and other fellow makers.

Each bead results from the centuries-old knowledge of Venetian artisans, and we take great pride in preserving and carrying on the lampworking technique. Venice is our hometown and our main source of creativity. In the jewels we design you'll discover the charming atmosphere of its streets and the quiet beauty of its lagoon. Whether you choose a necklace from our collections, or you ask our help to create the perfect custom piece for you, we'll make sure that you'll carry with you part of Venice's artistic legacy and of its unmistakable allure.

On our website we're trying to create a platform for people who want to learn more about our craft: many people know about Murano glass at least by name, but not that many have had the chance to see its behind the scenes, meet the people behind it, and feel the way we feel about it.

Venice isn't just about canals and palaces, it's about the people who keep this unique and amazing city alive and breathing. But locals living in the city are increasingly more rare, and artisans living of their craft face much the same issues.

That's why our aim with our blog and our newsletter is to provide you with information and insights on our craft, but also spread awareness about the importance of responsible tourism, and to promote authentic artisanship and a more meaningful experience of our city.

Frequently asked questions
Are your jewels made of Murano glass?

The Trademark Vetro Artistico® Murano is a proof of origin provided by the Veneto Region in compliance with the law 70, passed on December 23 1994. It certifies that products have been made on the island of Murano, according to glass making tradition. It is managed by Consorzio Promovetro.

Our workshop is located in Venice, in sestiere of Cannaregio, and as such cannot request this proof of origin. We assure, however, that all glass rods used by us to make our beads are made of certified glass, and that production takes place in its entirety in the island of Venice, either by us or by other esteemed venetian artisans. The techniques used in glass processing reflect the centuries-old venetian tradition of beadmaking.

Is it true that your products are completely handmade?

Yes, all glass beads are produced either by us in our worshop in Venice or by other esteemed venetian artisans. The assembly of our jewels is entirely handmade by us. Small metal components and conterie - tiny glass beads - are purchased from trusted specialized third party companies, and are clearly wholesale products, since no one produce handmade materials such as these anymore.

Are your products nickel-free?

Yes, all small metal components used in our jewels are completely nickel-free.

Custom and personalized orders

We are available to all requests, both for single pieces or small exclusive collections. We will then discuss with you whether it is in fact possible to meet them, and on what terms.

Wholesale availability

We are willing to provide you our jewels, within the limits of an hand-crafted production.
