Authenticity Certificate

Lorena, along with her mother, sister, and son, handcrafts each pair of ''Marbled Swirls'' earrings of Murano glass to replicate the look of wood, and you would swear the striations were created by Mother Nature herself. The tradition of replicating natural wonders in Murano glass began in the fourteenth century, when Marco Polo would return to his native Venice with exotic treasures gathered from around the world. Soon, all of Venice would fall in love with these new looks. Unfortunately, there was never enough of the real thing to go around. So Venice's glass masters, unequaled in all the world, would invent ways to replicate these desirable looks from foreign lands. Pearl or stone, wood or ivory, the lampwork glass replicas are now often prized more than the real thing. Few artisans remain with the talent and decades of experience to pull this off! Lorena's ''Marbled Swirls'' Murano glass earrings measure approximately 2 inches long, wires. Handcrafted exclusively for Uno Alla Volta, from the hearts and hands of artisans.

Lorena

On Venice’s famed isle of Murano, glassworking traditions have been passed down through families, generation after generation. Lorena learned the art of lampworking from her grandmother, as the torch was, quite literally, passed down to her. Today, her business remains a family affair as Lorena’s sons, her sister, and even her mother work right by her side.
