New Etsy Listing Venetian Glass Earrings


One of my goals is to regularly add new listings to my Etsy shop, but I let other projects distract me too often. Tonight I added a pair of Venetian Glass Earrings to my shop.
What are Venetian Glass Beads? Authentic Venetian Glass Beads are made in Italy following ancient traditional methods. The glass is formed around a copper wire which is later dissolved with acid when the bead is completed. Imitation or copy-cats are massed produced on a wire coated with bead release. If you see chalky residue in the bead hole, it is not authentic Venetian Glass. You can read more about Venetian Glass here.
I hand selected this pair of beads. It was so hard to narrow down my selections, because there were so many beautiful designs to choose from. The pattern on these beads make me think of Van Gogh's iris painting - in a very abstract way. (On a side note, hubby & I saw this painting in 2003 when we traveled to Amsterdam. The Van Gogh Museum is one of the world's most popular museums, and it is well worth the trip!)
You can find another selection featuring Venetian Glass in my Etsy store. I hope you'll take a look. Be sure to contact me if you have any questions.
