These artistic Murano Glass earrings are handcrafted by artisans whose lineage goes back to the famous Murano master glass-makers of the centuries past. The beautiful design, brightness, and luminosity are achieved by making a pattern from tiny mosaic glass beads and carefully fusing them together in hot kilns to make flat Millefiori circles, which are then inserted into sterling silver frames. This intricate technique requiring a very high level of skill is called Millefiori in Italian, translated as "a thousand flowers" for the gorgeous mosaic pieces that make up the patterns. Millefiori glass-making was mastered by ancient Romans and sought after even in those days, yet after the fall of Rome the secret of Millefiori was lost. Centuries later talented Venetian masters after many attempts rediscovered it and brought it back to life in amazing Millefiori earrings, pendants, rings, and gorgeous art glass pieces.
These unique Murano Glass earrings are perfect for everyday wear or for a special occasion and will really accentuate your look in a uniquely Venetian way. They make a lovely gift for every woman who wants to look stylish and feel confident wherever she goes.
Measurements: The round dangling Millefiori measures 5/8 inch in diameter. Metal used in the ear hooks and frame is 925 sterling silver. These Murano Millefiori earrings come with an attractive velvet pouch and the certificate of authenticity.

Because each item is a unique work of art made by hand, slight variations of colors and patterns are possible and are a sign of authentic Murano Glass created in the ancient tradition.

Workmanship



The technique of fusing together small colored fragments of glass dates all the way back to Ancient Egypt and Rome. After the fall of Rome, having been lost for centuries, this intricate technique was reinvented by Murano glass masters in the 15th century, and given new life and worldwide fame. While this technique is called "Murrine" on Murano island, outside of Venice it was dubbed "Millefiori", or "a thousand flowers" for its resemblance to a blossoming meadow.
A Millefiori design starts with the rods of different colors, each made by stretching a blob of glass into a cane. These canes are then cut into small segments, and the segments are carefully arranged by hand into a pattern that fits within a desired shape. Finally, the resulting arrangement is put into a special furnace where the tiny glass pieces are carefully fused together in high heat, and then gradually cooled off. This is how Murano masters create their famous Millefiori pendants, earrings, cufflinks, pill boxes, paperweights and many other beautiful and unique Millefiori jewelry pieces that are instantly recognized and valued for their artistic appeal and fine craftsmanship. Enjoy your Murano Glass jewelry creation, knowing that it was carefully handmade by talented Murano Glass artisans in Venice, Italy.
