Welcome to Vetro Design

Vetro Design showcases the work of award-winning designers John and Frances Hanson. They have a passion for working with glass, melting and transforming it into beautiful jewellery and sculptures.

The name Vetro Design was inspired from a visit to Venice and the Island of Murano. Vetro is the Italian word for glass.

Our work continues to evolve. Designs are constantly changing so we hope you will bookmark this site and come back to visit again.
