Time moves a little bit slower in Venice. About 700 years slower, to be more precise. The way of life has changed very little since the Renaissance. It’s hard to have a rush hour when there aren’t any roads. Gondolas glide along the canals, deftly guided through hairpin turns by men who always have a song on their lips.
Few things have changed less than the artisans on the tiny island of Murano. But the beautiful glass creations that emerge from their fires are as new and fresh as ever. Take for instance our beautiful Venezia Murano Glass Watch that flaunts a colorful glass bezel handcrafted in Murano. The floral design shows off the famous millefiori, a Venetian glass-making technique that creates “a thousand flowers.” The Murano artisans fold layers of molten glass to create the vibrant flowers.
