Murano’s Glass Jewelry: All in the Family

In Venice, the Attombri brothers turn the beads into high fashion jewelry, working in their boutique under the colonnade rimming the Rialto market. Using a technique they invented, they string beads onto metal strands by hand, using the long traditional needles of the beading trade, each slender as a hair.
Creating exciting new three-dimensional shapes is key to them, the result of their architectural training. They make a good team: Stefano Attombri enjoys working with the beads while his brother is more interested in the metal, incorporating it as a design element into each piece. “Our work is different from anyone else,” Daniele Attombri said, as his brother worked on a beaded collar that would take 60 hours to complete.
