I picked up my newest souvenir made in Genova, Italy at my favorite boutique in Brucoli. Il Gioiello Arte Orafa Valanzana which means “The Jewel Goldsmith, Art Valanzana.” Glass blowing is a technique involving molten glass thats been inflated by a pipe incorporated into different shapes an colors. Truly an art form that dates back as early as 50BC and invented by the Phoenicians. It seems as though what I was wearing last night had a major influence to my selection. This beautiful hand blown glass is a collectors piece I’m sure to treasure for years to come. It’s delicately thin and I’m very hesitant to put anything in it. Found a perfect resting spot on the table next to our couch. Settles nicely there, do you agree?
