    Made a bunch of boro cabochons for the talented @gaynor_puglisi to wrap up! I cannot wait to see what she makes these “gems”into.  A bit of a history lesson on glass: Murano, in Italy, has been a centre of glass making since about 100AD and had a reputation for exporting imitation gems. In a decree in 1487, the Senate of Venice forbade the making of imitation diamond, rubies, spinels, emeralds, sapphires, and amethysts. Jewellery found on the body of Edward I of England was found to contain glass, and jewels belonging to Richard II of England contained glass. Elizabeth I owned glass jewellery, as did Mary, Queen of Scots and Queen Anne, wife of James I.
