Beautiful Muranese chevron bead made from old cane glass by Italian glass maker Luigi Cattelan.  Born and raised in Murano, Italy, Luigi comes from a family of glass masters, dating as far back as the 15th Century.

For Luigi, glass and bead making is not just a hobby or a career, but a way of life.  Itís in his blood, his ancestry, and in the culture of his city, Murano, where the art of blowing glass began 500 years ago. For 20 years, Luigi worked as the director of production in the oldest glass factory in Murano, the Societa Veneziana Conterie (SVC) founded in 1893.  In 1992, Luigi began making beads on his own, launching the chevron bead back into the Italian and African markets. 

Using the compositions of glass from the SVC, as well as from his grandfather and great-grandfathers, Luigi is the only remaining Muranese who continues to produce chevron beads.  Using this old and rare chevron cane glass to make into beads, it reminds him of the past, and gives the wearer an innate appreciation and understanding of the craftsmanship of Muranese glass masters.

Beads range in size from 23x17mm to 29 x 25mm.
