Keeping secrets with Murano glass earrings continues with the Destino Jewellery handmade jewellery collection. The line is manufactured by embracing the skills developed on the island of Murano for centuries, many skills of which are well kept secrets by the island’s workers and employees. Such secrets have been retained thanks to the island’s historic administration by the then government body that controlled the glassmaking industry and the flow of external secrets from the island. This was achieved by preventing workers from using their skills elsewhere.
That notwithstanding, it is known that glass factories often caught fire due to the use of furnaces to produce (hand blown) Murano glassware. The location of manufacturers of Murano glass on Murano island ensures that fire disasters in the city of Venice are prevented.
