An impression of a delightful hot air balloon created with beads of authentic Murano glass. The large bead (or "balloon") is blown by mouth by master craftsmen in the furnaces of Murano, Italy. As a blown bead, it is hollow, keeping the beads light and easy to wear. The beads feature transparent stripes of amethyst-purple and blue with crisp black lines. The smaller cube bead (or "basket") is amethyst Moretti Murano glass over .925 sterling silver.
I've carefully wire-wrapped these beads together with tarnish-resistant Argentium sterling silver, allowing the smaller bead to swing easily from the larger one. They are hung on my own hand-forged Argentium ear wires.
- Large Murano Glass Bead: Approximately 20mm (0.8 inches) round
- Small Glass Bead: Approximately 8mm
- Length: The earrings dangle approximately 2.8 from your ears
