Description

The millefiori technique involves the production of glass canes or rods, known as murrine, with multicolored patterns which are viewable only from the cut ends of the cane.

A murrine rod is heated in a furnace and pulled until thin while still maintaining the cross section's design. It is then cut into beads or discs when cooled.

This method produces stunning and unique glass beads. It is often used in making paperweight too.

I have wire wrapped these beautiful glass earrings to prevent you from losing your precious artisan glass beads. These are a OOAK item.

The technical knowledge for creating millefiori was lost by the eighteenth century, and the technique was not revived until the nineteenth century. Within several years of the technique's rediscovery, factories in Italy, France and England were manufacturing millefiori canes.They were often incorporated into fine glass art paperweights.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Please pay your Etsy invoice within 24 hours of placing the item into your shopping cart. Placing an item in the cart does not secure nor guarantee the item for yourself.

Most of my items are OOAK (one-of-a-kind). I sell on multiple sites and in multiple auctions and do not take an item down from being viewed and purchased on alternate sites until payment is received in full here.

Therefore, be aware that a delay in payment may result in your desired item being sold on another site before you can secure it for yourself, even if you have placed it in your cart here.

I reserve the right to remove an item from your cart due to an unpaid invoice in order that others can also have the opportunity to purchase said item on Etsy.



Returns & exchanges

Refunds will be issued upon request if the product you purchased is not the item you received.

For items damaged in the mail, please contact your local mail carrier. If you would like to purchase damage insurance, please contact me at the time of payment.

I process refunds after the item is returned to me in the original condition.

I do not reimburse for the original shipping and return shipping charges.

Shipping policies

I mail all items with tracking numbers to the U.S., Canada and internationally.

I combine shipping for multiple items. If this does not show in your cart at checkout, convo me asap and I will gladly refund any overage charges.

For an extra charge determined by the U.S. Postal services, I can include "signature upon receipt" for those of you who have had trouble in the past with any mailed items being removed from your mail box.

Please let me know at the time of payment if you would like to request the postal carrier obtain your signature on delivery instead of just leaving an item in your mailbox.

Additional policies

In some cases and when indicated within the item description, there may be options for specialized design. Please ask.
