About The Artist

Andrea Menghetti

I began working with Venetian Glass over twenty years ago and love the vivid colors and intrinsic history handcrafted into each and every bead. Inspired and educated by my travels throughout Italy, India, Mexico and many other countries, I have come to appreciate the incredible variety and cultural significance of personal adornment.

My jewelry designs focus on elegant combinations of color (lots of color!), geometric shapes and asymmetrical balance. I mix Venetian Glass beads with Swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls, sterling silver and gold fill findings. My goal is to create a modern and alluring collection of finely crafted jewelry at affordable prices. Jewelry that is current and timeless, something you’ll want to wear again and again.

You'll find my jewelry in finer retail stores, galleries and eclectic boutiques in the United States. It has also been featured in some of the most prestigious museum gift shops in the country including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Baltimore Museum of Art and the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington D.C.

My skilled staff and I handcraft each piece of jewelry right here in my studio, located on the beautiful Central Coast in Pacific Grove, California.
