Amethyst Murano Glass, Square shaped, Venetian Glass Beads in a pillow square shape that is called "Bombata" beads.
The handmade beads, are lampworked beads, made one-by-one under the flame in Venice, Italy. I personally worked with my glass artisans in Venice, to get the colors and shape of beads for these earrings. These handmade beads have 5 separate, time consuming steps (or layers) of work, under the flame; hence the name: lamp worked beads.
The color of the "Bombata" square beads is Amethyst/Oro; Amethyst Murano Glass with 24 Karat Gold Foil; and Aventurina (copper filings).
Crystal clear Murano glass covers each bead; which is approximately 3/4 of an inch; or 18mm.
Earrings are shown in gold filled wires; also available in gold filled posts; or in dangle clips.
Gold posts cost us more; $3.00 additional cost for posts.
The square "Bombata" beads earrings are accented with gold metallic bead caps, and gold seed beads.
The earrings dangle from the earring wire (from the gold ring to the bottom seed bead), approximately 1 3/8 inch.
The earrings dangle from the post, approximately 1 1/4 inch.
I personally wire wrap each earring several times, so that the bead will not separate from the earring wire or post.
