Earrings, Red Millefiori Glass Tiny Open Heart on Hoops in Sterling

Millefiori glass, (Italian: “thousand flowers”), type of mosaic glassware characterized by a flowerlike pattern. It is produced by first heating a bundle of thin glass rods of different colors until the rods fuse together. The bundle is pulled thin, cooled, and sliced cross-sectionally to produce small disks with flowerlike designs. These disks are applied to hot blown glassware such as a vase or bowl, which is then reheated and blown a second time. The resulting product is a brilliantly colored piece of glassware with an intricate, ornamental design.  Romantic floral patterns lend themselves beautifully to jewelry designs.

Hoops are 15mm in diameter with latch closure.

1" in length

Handmade in Santa Fe, NM since 1987
