These Venetian glass earrings feature Turquoise and gold leaf colored venetian glass (aka Murano glass). The venentian glass beads are 11x5mm flat squares. The Venetian glass earrings are on light weight sterling silver earwires and measure about 1 inch in length. The venetian bead has a turquoise colored base with 14K gold speckles on top giving these earrings a playful "shimmer". The venetian glass beads are first crafted by hand by master craftsmans in Italy, then I take the bead and transform it into wearable delights. No two are alike. Your Venetian glass earrings will be near identical to the image shown.

Regular $30, NOW $18

History of Murano Venetian glass jewelry:

In the year 1291, the city of Venice designated the island of Murano for production of luxury Venetian glass. The island of Murano was an ideal locale for two main reasons; first, if a fire were to break out, it would be secluded to the island only; second, the secrecy of their glass trade was able to be closely monitored. By the 14th century, Murano's glassmakers were soon the island’s most prominent citizens. Some of the perks were enjoying immunity from prosecution by the Venetian state and daughters of a glassmaker were married into some of Venice’s most affluent families. One downside of the being a Murano glassmaker was you were not allowed to leave the Republic and if they did, there were never allowed to return to the trade.
