Tricolors Zanfirico Pendant
This Murano Glass pendant is a great use of our flat teardrops. The Murano Bead incorporates the technique of zanfirico. According to Corning Museum Zanfirico is: "A type of polychrome cane made by assembling a bundle of rods of different colors, and heating it until it is soft. The bundle is then attached to two pontils and elongated by drawing. At the same time, the bundle is twisted to produce a spiral pattern. , which is a synonym for , takes its name from the Venetian dealer Antonio Sanquirico, who, in the 1830s, encouraged the revival on Murano of this and other traditional techniques."
And our beadmakers make the best of this classic technique by sandwiching it between layers of transparent and opaque Murano Glass adding swirls of avventurina.
You need only make 1 wire wrap to complete this, or if you wish to make a simple loop, then use a larger gauge headpin so it is secure.
