ON SALE Bright Chartreuse flat square Venetian glass earrings
These earrings feature Bright Chartreuse colored Murano venetian glass (aka Murano glass). The Murano Venetian glass beads are 11x6mm flat squares. They are on light weight sterling silver lever back earwires and measure about 1 1/4 inches in length (other earwires options available). They have 14K white gold lining inside which is one of the signature styles of murano venetian glass, giving these earrings an enchanting "glow". The Murano 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.
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.
