Delightful and elegant, these Murano Millefiori studs are sure to brighten up your day and make you feel special. A symbol of Murano Glass masters' famous craftsmanship, the unique Millefiori technique was perfected on Murano island centuries ago and continues to impress the world with bright colors and wonderful mosaic-like designs. These delicate Murano Glass earrings will work well for a casual day or a special occasion to jazz up any outfit in a stylish yet unpretentious way.

Measurements: Each stud measures about 1/4 inch in diameter. The earrings come with an attractive velvet pouch and a certificate of authenticity. The posts are made of non-allergenic nickel-free metal alloy.

Because each Murano Glass piece is a unique work of art made entirely by hand, slight variations of colors and patterns are possible.

Workmanship



It all starts with crafting special Millefiori canes with a pattern inside, then cutting them into small pieces and carefully sorting them by hand inside a Murano Glass factory in Venice, Italy. The next step is making a Murano Glass bead by hand under a small flame. Then, while it is still hot, dipping the bead into the tray of tiny Millefiori pieces of appropriate colors to create a unique design and pattern. Lastly, the master reheats the bead again to make sure the Millefiori inclusions are completely infused into its surface, finalizes shaping it, and gradually cools it down. Thus, painstakingly, bead by bead, the artisans in Venice, Italy create Murano Glass Millefiori necklaces, bracelets, earrings, pendants, and other Venetian jewelry pieces with beautiful mosaic patterns. This work has been going on for hundreds of years and today Murano Glass masters still use only basic tools and skills honed by decades of experience in their factories and workshops on Murano island.
