Murano Filigrana Glass Beaded Earrings.

Filigrana is a traditional technique, which dates back to the 16th century in Murano, Italy. Long glass rods, transparent and colored,  are laid out in a symmetrical pattern, then rolled onto a blow pipe and blown into to expand into a bead. See short video here of the glass master shaping the bead.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TM7anIisk5E

Each bead is painstakingly made one by one, creating a unique piece of art. This is the same process for larger objects like perfume bottles and vases.

100% Murano Glass, made on the island of Murano! Non allergenic surgical steel for ear wire. Drop is approximately 2″.

Make a unique and welcome gift for yourself or anyone!
