Venetian Murano Glass Earrings

What elevates craftsmanship to the level of art? Perhaps one characteristic that defines art is its origin. A work of art showcases the artist's guiding vision, personal involvement and investment. By these standards, the artisans of Murano's glass studios aspire to creating works of art in their sparkling medium. Venetian glass has been famed for its beauty for centuries, and that includes the magnificent Murano glass earrings that have been a wardrobe staple for elegant women since the Renaissance. Each pair is handcrafted, and while the artist's hand is steady enough to make each pair match, no two are ever precisely alike.

The level of detail that Italian glassmakers achieve in their jewellery is breathtaking. A single pair of Venetian glass earrings can contain whole bouquets of tiny flowers, gilded vines and delicate leaves in a space not much larger than a fingernail. Wearing such intricate beauty feels special; these expertly wrought works of miniature art can't help but attract attention. Even a dainty pair of Murano glass stud earrings has incredible detail. 

The beauty of glass is that it takes on so many different styles depending on how it's handled. Demure floral beads are lovely, but glass can also look boldly sleek and contemporary when designed by an artist with a different outlook. Chunky beads in metallic finishes and asymmetrical shapes look ready for a modern gallery opening. Setting off a simple black sheath dress with a pair of dazzling abstract forms in brilliantly coloured Venetian glass will have all eyes on you. Those same earrings look equally fresh but far more casual with white linen and blue jeans. 

From modern art to one of the most ancient art forms, glass earrings can adapt. The small glass beads that make up twisted torsade earrings are like the stone chips in a beautiful mosaic; although each bead is tiny, the overall effect makes a sophisticated impact. Pair torsade glass earrings with your favourite jacket for an impeccably elegant office look. Mix them and match them with lively prints to enhance their colourful appeal.

However you prefer to wear your art, you'll find your preferred style from the great Italian masters of glass in Murano
