You'll always have Venice
Experience all the color and magic of a Venetian sunset, even though the gondolas are half a world away
I finally uncovered the secret behind Murano glass. My revelation came on a walk, just before dusk along the Grand Canal. It was so obvious that I can’t believe it didn’t come to me sooner. Every time I’ve visited the workshops of the small Italian island, I’ve been impressed by the skill and speed of the artists. They have to work quickly to sculpt the molten glass before it cools. It’s hard to believe that such hot, hectic work creates something so delicate and precious. But it does. And they’ve been doing it the same way for hundreds of years.
I’ve always considered artisans of the tiny Italian island to be sculptors and craftsmen. But once I saw their handiwork, I realized they were also painters. Look deep into the pieces in these earrings and you can see for yourself. The swirling palette of color rivals any master’s canvas and the artist behind the Murano Sunset Earrings have captured the beauty of a Venetian sunset with handmade treasures that recalls the sun dancing across the ripples of the lagoon. Using the aventurina technique (perfected in the 1600s), the artist blends glass with metallic flakes for a coppery orange and golden yellow shimmer. No two are identical. Every one is its own work of art. It’s the perfect way to appreciate the romance and magic of Murano, even when the gondolas are half a world away.
