Aprosio & Co



An illuminating boutique of miniature glass-beaded beauties.

This truly imaginative jewellery and accessories boutique is in the heart of Florence's artisan quarter. Roman designer Ornella Aprosio opened her glass bead atelier and showroom in Florence in 1993, using traditionally made Murano glass and Bohemian crystal beads to create jewellery and accessories exclusively by hand.

Perfection and attention to detail are of great importance to each unique piece, as the tiniest of glass and crystal beads are woven, crocheted, knitted and threaded. Taking inspiration from nature, you will see insects, snakes, flowers, animals and fruits in a large part of the collection of accessories. Her latest collection includes luscious objects for the home including curtains and cushions embellished with beads, and finely woven cashmere with crystal.

Amazing little things that you can find there. I really enjoyed going through the shop, even though I didn't buy anything. (I wanted to get some souvenirs from there but afterwards I thought it was a little bit too expensive for a present.) However I liked how you can see that they pay a lot of attention on details when they create those unique pieces.
