The "UNITE" Collection features a unique Murano glass bead that fuses color with a gold leaf: "la Foglia d'Oro". In Italian the name is a play on words; "Lego" literally is "I unite", as in idea and form, and also conveys an homage to the simple building blocks of color and geometric shapes.
"OCCHIO" is the Italian word for "Eye." For this collection, the glass artisans in Murano envelop dense colored glass in a translucent glass layer. As the bead is formed into an oval shape, the center layer emerges as an iris, creating a focal point for the silver setting.
Our sophisticated "BLACK" Collection features opaque black Murano glass beads. Each artisanal bead is hand worked at the flame, formed into a flat oval shape, and bathed in an acid solution to render a matte finish. The resulting creation evokes river-worn stone, but with a mysterious black depth.
