Beautiful handmade Murano glass beads and mosaics created by Elena and Nicola Miani
Located in the district of Cannaregio in Venice, “Miani” offers beautiful handmade Murano glass beads created by the two Miani siblings Elena and Nicola.
All Miani’s creations are entirely hand made in Venice in their shop via torching, a technique belonging to the Venetian tradition, which makes it possible also in small places to melt and craft small quantities of glass, without making use of furnaces.
“Miani” hosts a torching workstation inside, where you might even catch Elena crafting beautiful beads that she will then put together for making unique bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and pendants.
If you’re looking for authentic Murano glass, visit “Miani” and discover Elena’s beads and bracelets, as well as other glass works of selected Venetian artisans: every piece offered is made in Venice and characterized by a high artisanal quality.
