During the days of the Republic of Venice glass crafts prospered because of good contacts with Byzantium. In 1291, fearing fire and destruction of buildings mostly wood, city, or perhaps a better protection of its secrets, glass manufacturers have been ordered to move their foundries Venice and the island of Murano.

At 2 pm, molten glass is ready and will be less than the temperature of 1000 ° C to 1100 ° C. The temperature of the glass 7 h, the viscosity required to work. After blowing and manipulation with the iron of all, Thanks for the malleability guaranteed by the continuous contact with fire.

The glass rod is the starting point for making glass beads. By pulling both ends of the glass bubble of the unique color for exact size is reached. The stems can be up to 100 meters long and is cut into small sections of about one meter each, and then attached in bundles. solid glass rod is used to make balls of great beauty with the flame "technical".

Another technique is very important that the implementation of parts of the core rod millefiori. Also called millefiori or accounts of Moses, which are made by the application of thin pieces of glass core rod hot for the whole surface is covered. The heel is heated a second time for welding murrine. The result is that two pieces Murrina not the same.
