In the 2003 romantic comedy, a devastated divorcée escapes to the beautiful Tuscan countryside to heal her broken heart. After a few rough starts and stops she finally captures a shot at true love. There’s no doubt the beauty of Tuscany had something to do with it. Enough afternoons beneath a perfect blue sky and beside blue waters would turn the worst skeptic into a hopeless romantic. We wanted to bottle the transformative beauty of Tuscany, so we turned to one of the very best Murano glass artisans in Italy–– Manuela Zanvettori.
Manuela Zanvettori comes from a family who have been creating artistic glass in Murano, Venice for over half a century. Manuela grew up seeing her mother make glass jewels, threading thousands of beads and creating beautiful pieces every day. After her studies and 10 years spent between London and Paris where she worked for famous fashion houses, Manuela decided to return to Murano in 2006 to create her own studio in the core center of the island famous for the glass masterpieces.
For the Tuscan Sky Murano Collection, Manuela has captured the perfect blue sky of Tuscany in original Murano glass canes produced on the island. She’s worked a delicate floral motif into generous glass beads along with 24K gold leafing and then hand-strung dozens of handcrafted Murano glass beads creating jewelry that consists entirely of the famous Italian glass. There’s no need to take an 18 hour flight to warm the heart, turn up the heat with a piece of Tuscan sky captured in pure Murano Glass.
