Torsade Clip On Earrings

Beading is always eye-catching, and it's especially intriguing when tiny beads are fashioned into torsade designs. Torsade jewellery gets its name from the distinctive twist that artisans give the strands of Murano glass beads before fixing them to the clasp or post.  They're literally a twist on Murano glass earrings.

The finished effect resembles a beautiful mosaic of colour that can pull together an outfit like nothing else. Sophisticated and subtle, torsade earrings have a unique appeal that works equally well alone or with other torsade pieces.

The heart of torsade clip on earrings is made of glass. Murano, an island off the marshy coast of Venice, has been home to some of the world's greatest glass artists for centuries. They've devised colours and techniques that no other artisans can duplicate. One of the hallmarks of Murano glass jewellery is its intricacy, and torsade earrings highlight that careful design. Each strand of tiny beads is twined around its neighbouring strands to form a delicate rope of beadwork; each rope is then twisted into a tiny knot. 

Torsade jewellery uses many colours to create the effect of a single colour in much the same way that Impressionist painters used tiny dots of paint to create a stunning picture of natural light and shadow. The gorgeous colours of Murano glass jewellery not only create harmony within the piece itself, but with the rest of your wardrobe. A pair of torsade earrings in multiple swirling hues let you mix and match those colours throughout the rest of your outfit. By picking out and highlighting an accent colour in your favourite print, torsade earrings shine a spotlight on hues that might otherwise disappear. 

Add versatility to your jewellery wardrobe with torsade knot earrings. You'll love the subtle flattery they provide for everything you wear, and you'll find yourself reaching for them in your jewellery box again and again.
