Inspired by Nature
Our jewelry collection combines time honored Murano craftsmanship with contemporary design and joyful beauty. Each creation is thoughtfully made with crushed Venetian glass and genuine millefiori in our Portland, Oregon studio. Millefiori, (Italian for 1,000 flowers) is an ancient glass making technique characterized by a flowerlike pattern. It is produced by first heating a bundle of thin glass rods of different colors until the rods fuse together. The bundle is pulled thin, cooled, and cut crosswise to produce small slices with flowerlike designs.
These millefiori slices are typically applied to hot blown glassware such as a vase or bowl, which is then reheated and blown a second time. Unlike traditional blown glass, we individually set the millefiori by hand, fuse multiple times in a 1500 degree kiln, cold work the edges, then wrap with precious metals and love.
We take great pride in our work and strive to add a touch of joy and beauty to your day. Compliments are guaranteed!
