These earrings are absolutely gorgeous. Apart from being a fun starfish shape, they are a beautiful turquoise, as if they were spotted in a clear ocean in some exotic place. The fronts have a layer of silver, with turquoise lines criss-crossed all over them with little gold accents.
They measure approx. 2.8cm/1.1" long and 2.8cm/1.1" at the widest part.
The earrings are hung on a pair of my handmade ear wires, (with a little rubber tube on each to stop any accidental losses - just like the butterfly on the studs, but they can be swapped to a pair of shop bought studs, if you would prefer them to be, (no extra cost incurred) please just message me and I will be happy to do it.
Turquoise Starfish EARRINGS ONLY
As I purchased my items from a designer in the USA I felt it only right to add the word (Style) so as to not mislead anyone, by allowing them to think I had purchased them in Italy. Please see the history of Murano Glass section below.
All the items in the collection are GLASS and are therefore more delicate than 'normal' jewellery, extra care should be taken in their handling to make sure nothing breaks. Refunds will only be given, for breakages during transport. If something should happen in transit (I will ensure they are well protected) please send photographs of the item with all its original packaging.
For your information this is the history of Murano Glass.
Murano glass is glass made on the Venetian island of Murano, which has specialized in fancy glasswares for centuries. Murano’s glassmakers led Europe for centuries, developing or refining many technologies including crystalline glass, enamelled glass, glass with threads of gold, multicoloured glass, milk glass, and imitation gemstones made of glass. Today, the artisans of Murano are still employing these centuries-old techniques, crafting everything from contemporary art glass and glass figurines to Murano glass chandeliers and wine stoppers, as well as tourist souvenirs. Today, Murano is home to a vast number of factories and a few individual artists' studios making all manner of glass objects from mass marketed stemware to original sculpture. The Museo del Vetro in the Palazzo Giustinian houses displays on the history of glassmaking as well as glass samples ranging from Egyptian times through the present day. Almost anywhere you go in Italy you can find Murano glass, especially in Venice.
