Maximum sparkle. Maximum chic. These fascinating Czech glass opalescent earrings feature a tiny fire-polished rondelle and a table cut opal and gold oval Picasso bead, separated by an antique copper disc. They measure just under 1 1/4″ in length, dangling from dainty handmade antiqued copper ear wires.
These earrings are part of our Tiny Treasures™ collection, featuring smaller and more delicate pieces made primarily of Czech glass with gemstones and crystals.
Czech glass has been renowned for centuries for its innovative and distinctive colors and finishes. Prior to the 1830s, these beads were painstakingly cut by hand with knives. Today, Czech glass beads are machine made, but no less fascinating. The seemingly endless selection of colors, patterns, textures and styles lend themselves to a vast array of unique jewelry designs.
