About Our Beads

Our beloved Amore earrings have hand-made Italian glass hearts from Murano. Murano is a tiny island next to Venice and it is renowned for it's glassmaking, and the glass beads I source here are of the highest quality. 

Below is a video of how the hearts are made, this process is called Lampworking. In this video, you can see how the artist will use the flame to temper the glass rods to become a runny honey-like consistency. This is so they can manipulate it into whatever form they desire!
