String of Pearls is a tribute to the glass pearl tradition of Murano, and to the rich colours of the Venetian paintings. Even metallic gold and copper glitters were blown into the pearls, which provide a splendid gold shimmer during the melting process of the surface.
There is something magical about glass pearls. This installation has a touch of metallic gold, with a glitter of amethyst as a contrast. These pearls were made by the Lasismi Cooperation in Finland.
