Each earring is composed of 3 hand cut Murano glass stones of different sizes mounted on a gilded metal hook (Nickel free – Made in Italy). Each cube (1cmx1cm- 0.4 in.x0.4 in.) consists of 2 transparent glass layers and a gold leaf in the middle. A particular work carried out on the glass pieces resulted in softening and rounding the glass stone edges while keeping their “raw” appearance.
