Amourrina beads are handmade of glass. Manufacturing of this product has been realized in Murano (Venice) with hand crafted procedures, therefore small imperfections, subsidence and ripples of the surface are deliberately present and they are a feature of the product, proving the hand-made manufacturing procedure.
CARE: Avoid falls and bumps to prevent chipping or breakage. In recent years, arsenic and lead - both proven harmful to the environment and to humans - have been removed from the ingredients composing the glass used to make the murrine rods. Due to this change in the components blend, the white parts of the beads could oxidize over time. This oxide, which is not harmful in any way, can be easily removed by cleaning the beads with a cotton swab or soft cloth soaked with a common anti-rust product.
All the metal components are handmade of brass 18k gold plated and are nickel free. Manufacturing has been realised in a small craft workshop in Arezzo which adopts responsible policy towards the sustainability of production using brass alloys produced exclusively from recycled and certified resources
