Stand out from the crowd at any event by wearing our unique, unusual, exclusive brooches.
Made in the Kholui villages of Russia, our gorgeous Russian lacquer brooches are made according to old traditions overseen by professional artists.
Lacquer brooches are made of high-quality pressed wood cardboard (paper-mâché) soaked in hot linseed oil. A primer consisting of linseed oil, soot, and clay is applied. Then its surface is coated with black oil varnish. The miniature paintings are made with tempera egg paints with the addition of cherry resin. The painted surface is covered with oil varnish (up to eight layers) and polished.
A brooch, pin, or clip can be used to:
⚜️ Fasten a dress, robe, or blouse
