Pink Murano Blown Glass Sculpted Battuto Earrings
* Please note the size and weight of these earrings as for reasons of hygiene I do not accept their return *
These beautiful labour-intensive Venetian Murano hand blown Murrine sculpted beads measure approx 33mm (3.3cm or approx 1 & 1/4") Below hang clusters of faceted Amethyst beads.
After these beads are hand blown and cooled a little they undergo a process known as battuto, where parts of the beads are engraved on a diamond wheel, this creates different shapes and grooves on the bead, and requires great precision.
They are enhanced with 14k gold filled beads and 24k gold vermeil beads. The amethyst beads are wire-wrapped with 14k gold filled wire and hang from 14k gold filled rings. The length is 80mm (8cm or approx 3 & 1/4") ** Each earring weighs 12g **
