Description

Black & Gold Murano Glass Bead Earring

These striking Murano glass earrings, handcrafted by Venetian artisans, feature a black and gold Murano glass bead dropping from French wire hooks. To make this earring, gold foil is infused into the glass, and as the gold foil melts, unique patterns are formed, creating a one-of-a-kind pair of earrings.

They are reminiscent of jewelry created or acquired by the costume shop for performances at the Metropolitan Opera.

History

Met Costumes

All costumes and jewelry seen at the Met are unique works of art. The company puts on an average of 25 operas every year, with as many as 200 individual costumes featured in each of them, and works with some of world’s greatest costume designers to create unique pieces for an average of six or seven new productions per season. Everything is handmade in the Met’s own workshops, and many costumes and jewelry items from past productions, all the way back to the 1880s, are preserved in the Met Archives.
