In February I visited Italy for the first time. Since I'm a jewelry designer I had to visit the island of Murano and see if I could find some gorgeous Venetian Murano glass beads to use in my designs. I was fortunate enough to contact a bead maker (Maurizio) and he let me dig through his boxes and boxes of beads. He had just moved his studio and hadn't started unpacking yet!
