The currency of affection

Before Gold Coins, There Was Glass

Before there were gold coins or tall stacks of paper money, there was glass. Forged in ancient ovens by artisans in Egypt, Rome, Asia, and the Middle East, precious handcrafted beads of glass became the main currency of global trade. Value was determined by size, color, and rarity.

In the hands of early explorers, a handful of beads gifted from a king in Nigeria could find their way to an Emperor in China and back to Europe. Today the world economy has changed, but the passionate craft of glassmaking is as rich as ever. You may not be able to trade glass for goods and services, but sharing our Mazzarone Necklace gets you something even sweeter.

The Mazzarone Necklace features a strand of rich purple beads that resemble the fat Sicilian grapes of their namesake region in Italy. Embrace the history and beauty of ancient glass craftsmanship with this stunning piece.
