Beaded Lampwork Earrings

One of the signature techniques of Murano's artists in glass is lampworking. Lampwork requires deft hands and years of expertise to create intricate designs on even tiny surfaces such as glass beads. Beaded lampwork earrings showcase the skill of the artist in a uniquely wearable form. Because lampwork incorporates so many colours and textures, earrings of lampwork beads go with a wide variety of styles. They also look beautiful when worn with neutrals as a museum might show a work of art against walls of white or pale grey. 

Murano Glass

Transparent glass has its own beauty, but Murano's glassmakers use the full range of translucency and opacity to create their stunning designs. Whorls of milky glass and metallic swirls give the transparent colours around them even greater depth and clarity. Tiny painted flowers on translucent glass are more vivid in opaque hues. Marbled, mosaic and millefiori patterns become more brilliant with different transparencies and finishes. The play of metallic and vitreous lustres is so intriguing that some glassmakers turn it into abstract art in clip on discs of pure colour. 

When glass is as beautiful as gemstones, it's for more than just admiring on a display shelf. Murano glass necklaces, earrings and rings are wearable art. A sporty Italian car may not be in your immediate future, but you can still appreciate the beauty of fine Italian design in the form of beautiful Murano glass jewellery.
