Amethyst glass is layered over gold and silver foil and a black base to make these contemporary Venetian glass earrings. This is a great example of how different the silver or gold foil affects the coloring in the earring. This pair of earrings is a combination of gold and silver foil encased by amethyst glass. You can see the gold foil makes the amethyst look more brown and the silver foil more purple. Beads are handmade in Italy, earrings are handmade by me. Very nice combination for autumn.

** 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.
