Increadibly light weight, these hollow "onion" shaped earrings combine rich purple and lavender colored glass with a thin black stripe. The beads are individually blown on the island of Murano, Italy where they have been making glass since the 12th century. These are the smallest and lightest of my Murano glass selection. The colorful beads measure roughly 5/8" wide and hang about 1" from the earhole. I've framed them with Swarovski crystals. They fasten to the ear with the highest quality sterling silver lever-backs.
