Millefiori, meaning "thousand flowers" in Italian, describes a method of glasswork involving bound thin glass rods. When melted together under heat, the glass forms a flower shape that is then cooled and cut. You can read more about
millefiori glasswork here [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millefiori]. I paired millefiori beads with small silver dragonfly American-made lead free pewter charms for these earrings.

The earwires (earhooks, earring findings, etc.) are nickel-free, brand-new, never been worn. Except by you, of course!
I now offer all my dangle earrings with your choice of nickel-free earwire in french hook/fish hook (pictured), leverback, kidney wire, and clip-ons. Choose your favorite from the drop-down menu on the right side of the screen below the price if you're using a desktop computer or right below the photos if you're using the Etsy Mobile app.
I don't have pierced ears, so I was hesitant to make a line of jewelry that I wouldn't be able to test out before putting it up for sale. I'm grateful to my friends and relatives who provided me design feedback on all of my earrings, including these.
