Murano Studios

Our founder and head designer was born into a family of creative entrepreneurs.  From a young age Cindy showed a passion for

creating beautiful fashioned jewelry.   Her dream of designing and marketing her own label has been a dream of hers since a young age. Her flare for the creativity, uniqueness and craftsmanship combined with her entrepreneurship has landed her in the business of making lamp worked beads in the jewelry industry.

Since 2009, she has received intensive training in the trade of alchemy of glass.

The fascination of glass, the colors and their chemistry has since kept her engaged in the business of designing and making unique and beautiful glass beads. Cindy’s designs have seen her become influential in the procurement of upmarket glass beads sold by major brands internationally. She takes joy and pride in delivering glass beads of the highest quality and by so doing bringing color, design and beauty into the jewelry industry.

The glass beads designed by Cindy’s company, Murano-Studios, are elegant hand crafted items to be made into tokens of sentiment, hence the company’s slogan that their beads are:

“A moment captured in time”
