The Studio:

The phrases used most often when clients and visitors enter Glasshouse Italy for the first time are; “Alladin’s Cave” “Treasure Trove” “So much choice!” and “My goodness, what a beautiful space!”

Through their wanderings, Lily and Tim have amassed a fascinating assortment of funny stories, unique beading supplies, jewelry and various brick-a-brac, some of which is available for purchase on this website. When you are in the Versilia area, a personal visit to their studio is a highly recommended must!  Glass bead making demonstrations are available upon request, and you will love browsing through Glasshaus Italy’s unique selection of beads and other offerings and supplies.

Glasshaus Italy  also offers an array of interesting events and classes as well, including jewelry design, glass bead making, art therapy/mixed media, astrological readings, cooking classes, beading parties and more. Plus, you are welcome to browse through their large library of beading and jewelry design books, for those in search of a little bit of extra inspiration.

So come and see what all the buzz is about, whether it be online or, (by prior appointment),  in-person… You just might leave with a beautiful new beaded creation of your own making!

The Area:

The town of Camaiore is located in a  lush, green valley surrounded by hills and the northern Apennine mountains. Camaiore has Roman origins as one of the largest encampments near to the city of Lucca and was an important station along the Via Cassia. The origins of its name “Campus Maior” come from this.

In the Middle Ages, the town grew considerably, thanks to the ancient Via Francigena pilgrim route, which is still traveled on widely, today. The city represented the Twenty–seventh stage during the journey of Sigerico Canterbury, and was called Campmaior by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Now Camaiore is filled with many artistic treasures which include the Badia di San Pietro, an ancient Benedictine convent and church dedicated to St. Peter that was built in the VIII century. And in the town center we find the Collegiate church dedicated to St. Mary of the Assumption, from the XIII century, flanked by its imposing XIV century bell-tower, as well as the Museum of Sacred Art and many other churches, gardens, shops, restaurants, cafes, parks, etc.

The territory of Camaiore is lush and beautiful and known for its diverse landscape, peppered with  small medieval villages like Monteggiori, Casoli, Gombitelli e Montebello. Their hillside positions offer a stunning view over the sea and surrounding hills and mountains.

For beach-lovers, the famous Lido di Camaiore is only 8 kilometers from the town center.
