Opale Rose EarringsRegular price $41.00
The lampworked fire opal glass ovals showcased in these earrings are gorgeous examples of midcentury Czech glass artisans’ talent.
Czech glass artisans honed their skills for centuries, and then in the early 18th century, they were the first to start pressing hot glass in finely detailed molds. Opal glass is created by hand mixing and molding multiple glass colors with tiny pieces of goldstone glass.
By the early 20th century, Czech glassmakers had mastered their craft, and their exquisitely detailed glass buttons were exported around the world.
In this piece:
- Vintage fire opal cabochons, made in Czechoslovakia
- Brass navette-shaped loops
- Nickel-free & lead-free brass euro wire closures
- Hangs 1 3/4”
