Graceful and stylish, these Murano Glass Millefiori earrings are modern and classic at the same time. A burst of color created by pairs of bright beads with a variety of millefiori designs will surely lift your mood and add a bit of Venetian art to your day. The simple yet glamorous design of these earrings owes its popularity to the uniqueness of Millefiori - the most famous Murano glass technique.
  • Measurements: Each ball-shaped bead measures 3/8 inches in diameter. The full length of each earring is just under 2 inches.
  • Ear hooks are made of gold-plated surgical steel. All other non-glass parts are also gold-plated.
  • These Murano Glass earrings come with an attractive velvet pouch and the certificate of authenticity.
  • These earrings are crafted by hand using the Millefiori glass-making technique, where each bead is made by fusing random Murano glass mosaic pieces together under a flame. Because of this, each bead is unique and no two beads are exactly the same. This is not a defect but a unique and coveted feature of authentic Murano Glass.

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.
