Recommendation by Lemi
In the little backroom of Venetian Dreams, Marisa Convento turns glass beads into coral branches. She is what you would call a modern-day “Impiraressa,” a Venetian Bead-Stringer. Gift yourself a unique jewelry set crafted by a magic touch and patient devotion. Marisa uses fine Murano glass, made specially for the shop. Stringing seems second-nature to her, whether it’s when she’s gathering baubles on a thread or relaying the history of the city to customers. The original Impiraressas were women in the Arsenale era (1104-1797) who strung beads to be shipped out. What Marisa does is pay heed to these women and elevate it to an art form.
