Venetian glass bead earrings by Dolce Beada in pale green glass with gold foil banding with colorful glass dots, known as frit. Each diamond shaped bead is handmade in Venice, Italy and then the earrings are made by me in my California studio. I love bringing you jewelry that combines the traditions of Italian glass bead making with contemporary jewelry styles. These are lightweight, easy to wear and just a great pop of color for any occasion. The shape reminds me of the harlequin styled costumes worn for Carnival, harlequin earrings! Enjoy!

** Why Venetian Glass?
All of my jewelry features Venetian or Murano glass beads. I love the artistry, the simplicity and the depth of color found in Italian glass. Each bead is individually handmade in Italy using techniques dating back to the 13th century. The beads are formed by melting glass canes over an open torch flame, often adding gold , silver or white gold foil and encasing that with more glass. When the glass is placed over the foil it has a textural quality to it. The beads are then slowly annealed in a kiln which makes them very durable.

** About the jewelry:
The earrings are handmade in my studio overlooking the redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains. The earwires are .925 sterling silver and may feature a small sterling silver bali style accent beads. Your earrings will come on a labeled card and in a gold organza gift bag ready for gifting (see last photo for an example). A card explaining the techniques of Venetian glass beadmaking will also be included.

** Size:
The earrings are about 1.25" in length from the top of the earwire to the bottom of the earring and about .5" wide.

** Your satisfaction:
Dolce Beada has been my baby for 10 years. If you are not satisfied with your purchase you are welcome to return it within 30 days for a full refund.
