Aventurine glass became popular in the 18th century when Venetian glass workers, preparing molten glass, accidentally dropped copper filings into the batch. This produced an entirely new style of glass infused with sparkles. Today, artisans on Venice's famed isle of Murano still use this technique to handcraft this bold Venetian aventurine bolero necklace. 17'' long with 6'' drop. Gold-plated clasp.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper echelon may delight in the exclusivity of an object, crafting culture permeates the trendy shops of modern-day, millennial Brooklyn, and led the grassroots, ultra-feminist Riot Grrrl movement of the early 1990s. From punk musicians to polished socialites, an appreciation for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind wares is a common thread that connects us to our humanity. This work reminds us that our fingers can do so much more than just operate machines. It connects us to our cultures, our ancestors, our neighbors, and even strangers from faraway places, just through placing a single object between our palms.
