A favourite piece of jewellery

Millefiori pendant

Millefiori pendant

This is a lovely pendant to wear in the dark of the year when the trees are bare.

It’s made of millefiori beads – tiny thin sections of glass rods with different colour and patterns – trapped inside aquamarine glass so that the light shines through.

No tree in nature could have such variety in its blossoms and foliage as this one, but then it’s a dream tree, a fairy-tale tree.

I  bought it in Florence, choosing it with immense care from among similar pendants, knowing that in its precise detail it would be unique.
