For those of you who may never have the opportunity to visit the Murano Glass Museum in person, I took the following photos. These cards explain both the Vocabulary of Murano Glass Making and a Glossary of the Types of Glass & Decorative Procedures. On the very last page, you will find a note about Conterie and the Methods of Making Glass Beads. Please click the pics to enlarge.

Now, let’s go bead shopping!🙂

Also, just a quick reminder – if you happen to be in Boston tonight, stop by Bead & Fiber Gallery at 460 Harrison Ave. to check out my current exhibit, Under the Microscope. Tonight is First Friday from 5-9pm! Please check Bead & Fiber’s website for more information. Hope to see you there!🙂

  1. >Yes, it was the museum in Murano, Italy! And, many pieces are now Venetian 'style' glass or Murano 'style' glass beads, but were probably made in China. Buy direct from artists in Venice/Murano to ensure you are getting the real thing.

  2. >It seems complicated to me as every vase, ornament of bead in glass is termed Murano…with so many copies out there…I don't know how you overcome this….
