Makronisos is a black and blue Murano charm.

Makronisos is a Greek island located in the Cyclades. The island is about 18km2 and has only 5 citizens. In the 1940s and to the 1970s, the island was used as a political prison. The island is now a monument for the Greek civil war. Therefore the island and its buildings are now protected.

This charm has a Sterling silver 925 core.

Melina collects the original Murano glass on the Murano islands and ships it to the workshop in Copenhagen. At the workshop, she uses 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.
