Skyros is a white Murano charm with colorful dots.

This charm has a Sterling silver 925 core.

We collect the original Murano glass on the Murano islands and ship it to our workshop in Athens. At the workshop, we use the glass to create tiny Murano charm art. Every bead is handmade and unique.

Murano glass is made on the Murano islands. The Murano islands consist of 7 islands and are located about 1,5 km from Venice. Murano is known for its glass factory, which opened in the 1200-century. The production was moved from Venice because of fire hazards.

Description

Skyros

The Greek island of Skyros is part of the Sporades archipelago. The island is 208 km2 and has about 3,000 inhabitants. In Greek history it is told that Achilles hid at Skyros. Disguised as a woman, he lived among King Likud’s daughters. He left Skyros when he was summoned to the siege of Troy.

During the First World War, Tris Boukes Bay on the southwestern part of the island was used as a harbor for hospital ships.
