Increadibly light weight, these round hollow earrings combine red and amber 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. The beads measure roughly 5/8" wide and hang about 1 3/8" from the earhole. I've framed them with Swarovski crystals. They fasten to the ear with the highest quality gold-filled lever-backs.
