You can usually determine someone’s emotional state just by looking into that person’s eyes. You can see if he or she is happy, sad, angry or tired by looking at the expression in the eyes. In some cultures, the eyes are believed to hold mystic powers, which can deliver misfortune to whomever the gaze is directed to.

Murano was settled by the Romans, then from the sixth century by people from Altino and Oderzo. First the island prospered as a fishing port, and a center for trade, from the 11th century, it began to decline as islanders moved to Dorsoduro, in 1291 all the glassmakers in Venice were forced to move to Murano due to the risk of fires. In the following century, exports began, and the island became famous, first for glass beads and mirrors, "aventurine glass" was invented on the island, and for a while murano was the main producer of glass in Europe.

When the jewelry is not in use, be sure to keep them in an anti-tarnish cloth or bag. This is a napped cloth flannel that absorbs chemicals and gasses in the air that can cause silver tarnishing. Do not wash or get the cloth wet as this will cause it to lose its effectiveness.

Brass has a similar appearance to gold and is an great alternative jewelry choice. However, brass jewelry does entail some extra care and responsibilities. Like silver, you can wet brass jewelry. Moisture can cause a brown patina to form which gives brass jewelry a unique look.
Even with stringent care, most brass jewelry will eventually show signs of tarnish over time. Even if you keep it dry, it can still absorb moisture from air and from your sweat. However, you can restore its original look by using a polish cloth or steel wool, which is available at any hardware store.
