Venezia. When you think about Venetian hand blown glass jewelry, you are not disappointed by Leslie Ann Genningers collection. It is very Venetian. For twenty years, since she was the first woman to enter the male dominated world of Murano, American designer, Genninger has been making beautiful eccentric glass jewelry, goblets and eternity lamps with Byzantine inspiration. Her shop, right on the Grand Canal, next to Ca Rezzonico, is a haven you would never want to leave.

Note: all the beads are especially designed and hand blown for her by a master glassmaker in Murano. Using thousand year old techniques some of the beads incorporate 24 k gold leaf and pure silver.
