Black & Blue Murano Battuto Earrings
These beautiful labour intensive Venetian Murano blown (hollow) sculpted glass lentil beads (round beads which have been partially flattened) measure 25mm (2.5 cm or 1")
After these beads are hand blown and cooled a little, they are then hand worked to grind the ridges and grooves into them. They are a mix of opaque black glass and transparent red and blue in the smooth panels.
They are enhanced with Sterling silver beads and Swarovski crystals. They are shown here on Sterling silver fish hook ear wires and the length is 44mm (4.4cm or approx 1 & 3/4") Each earring weighs 6g.
