This glass millefiori pendant is made from cut millefiori placed on top of a colored base layer.
Originally from the isle of Murano, these beautiful flower-like patterns are made from various layers of colored art glass. Being hand made, special techniques and skills were required to produce these colorful pieces.
This project is a very simple fused item to make and is quite colorful when finished. You can alter the size and colors of the project to suit your own design ideas.
Do not cap this piece as this may cause it to break. Breakage is caused by the clear cap spreading down the sides of the base layers whilst the little flowers have not completely fused down into the base.
The flowers will continue to expand as they fuse into the bottom layers. This creates stresses within the layers resulting in breakages.
