Klimt, 16mm Murano Glass Disc, Millefiori Earrings
Klimt Style, Murano Glass, 16mm Venetian Bead "Lentils", Disc Shaped Earrings, 24 Karat Gold Foil, Gemmato, Millefiori, Swarovski Gold Crystals:
Klimt style Venetian bead earrings, handmade with 16-17mm discs with 24 karat gold foil inside, multicolored abstract pieces of Murano glass mosaic canes, referred to as Millefiori, with crystal clear Murano glass covering the entire bead.
I also call this "Gemmato", as it resembles gemstones, such as sapphires, rubies, and emeralds in the gold foil; handmade, lampworked beads made in Venice, Italy.
I have accented the earrings with Swarovski "Crystal Aurum", gold metallic, faceted crystals; gold metallic "crowns", gold bead caps, and have wire wrapped the earrings.
Earrings dangle approximately 1 1/4 inches from the gold filled wire, in the photo. Earrings are also available with gold filled posts (studs), or gold filled lever backs.
