These earrings are the prettiest! Old Venetian glass beads are adorned with multiple surface treatments such as lovely swirls and roses. No two beads are exactly alike as they are handmade using the traditional lamp working technique combined with impeccable Murano craftsmanship. This transparent glass infused with copper filings causes an eye-catching gold-like glint when overlaid onto the surface of a bead, and it is characteristic of many exquisite Venetian beads. (Apocryphally, aventurine glass was discovered accidentally in a Murano workshop in the 1600s, and for many years was a closely guarded secret.) The next decoration applied are the various roses. This bead also has a foiled inner core. Each bead is a miniature piece of art made by artisans. The earrings are available in a rainbow of colours, and a variety of designs. Murano is a small island in the lagoon of Venice, where the art of glassmaking has more than 1000 years of tradition.
