LA PERLA VENEZIANA Snc di Ferrari Renata & C

 

La Perla Veneziana comes from a family history: Renata and Giorgia Ferrari learned the ancient craft of lamp-work bead-making from their mother Adelina, in true Murano tradition.

The union between this ancient process and the knowledge of fashion and colour is the engine that drives every one of their collections. The company maintains the exquisitely feminine feel of the ancient Venetian bead-making workshops: creativity, attention to detail and colour combinations, femininity are at the core of every single product.

Each bead is created with ideal precision and unhurriedness: "Nothing is left to chance, on the contrary, each detail is born from the interpretation of a desire, a dream, a need, in which glass is worked and molded just as in olden days, harmonizing with today's fashion, colours and transparencies".

Classic and modern, ancient techniques and experimentation, blend to achieve unique, original products in the creations of La Perla Veneziana.

" A LUME"  

 

Lampwork is one of the oldest and most well-known technique related to Murano glass. It uses a "lume", a small gas flame which allows fusion of glass, joining of separate pieces and new colour and shape combinations.

 

This manufacturing technique makes use of glass canes, or conjoining different materials such as murrine, gold and silver. It is a very complex technique that requires precision and imagination. An interesting fact about this technique is that it was the only one that was allowed to take place in Venice proper.


BEADS


There are many types of Murano glass beads. A first distinction can be between solid and blown beads, and they can all be categorized in three types: "conterie", "rosette" and "perle a lume".

 

The first two are obtained by processing previously prepared patterned canes, whereas the lampwork beads, "perle a lume", are created by wrapping glass, melted by a small gas flame, around a fine iron rod, and embellished in infinite ways.

 

There are several subcategories within lampwork beads.

 

The "scièta" bead is monochromatic, and its shape can be spherical, ovoid, cubic, cylindric.

 

There is the so-called mosaic bead, also called "millefiori", obtained by covering the hot glass core with numerous tiny sections of murrine, pressing them together with special tools.

 

Another type is the "submerged" bead, produced by coating the plain glass core with coloured glass grit, then covering it all with clear glass. If, instead of coloured glass, gold or silver leaf is used, the result will be a gold or silver "sommerso".

 

There are also "flowered" beads, in which a thin strip of aventurine is wrapped around the incandescent core, and subsequently decorated with raised embellishments. "Vette" beads are made in the same way, except fine twisted strands of coloured glass are wrapped around the core, instead of strips; the filaments are called "vette".
