Traditional Handmade Jewellery From Ukraine
You may have heard of the term handmade and have thought about the hours of labour that go into creating each piece. That is indeed true for many pieces, but with a bit of know-how, you can find beautiful and affordable handmade jewellery from Ukraine.
Handmade jewellery from Ukraine dates back to the 15th century when master metalsmiths used their skills to create intricate pieces for nobility. Today, this tradition continues as artisans in Eastern Europe continue to create truly one-of-a-kind works of art. There are several types of Ukrainian handmade jewellery that you can choose from beaded necklaces, clay beads, earrings made with antique coins, embroidered headbands and much more.
One of the most popular and easily identifiable forms of jewellery from this region is their chain bracelets. They are often made from a thin, flexible metal that is wrapped around the wrist and secured with a clasp. It can be quite difficult to find one that will fit properly because these bracelets are not adjustable. When you’re looking for a gift or souvenir, be sure to inquire about sizing before you buy. The best way to tell if your bracelet will fit is by measuring your wrist with a measuring tape or string and then holding up the string against your own arm where you would normally wear the bracelet on your wrist. If it looks like it should fit comfortably, go ahead and purchase that bracelet!
If you’re looking for a gift for a loved one or just have an eye for beautiful things, take some time to explore the world of Ukrainian handmade jewellery. You’ll find a variety of designs, styles and materials that are both traditional and modern. Plus, many of these pieces also have deep symbolic meanings behind them which makes them even more meaningful as gifts or just something special for yourself. There are so many talented artists in this part of the world who spend hours crafting each piece with care and precision – no two will be exactly alike in colour, design or style.
Ukrainian necklaces are typically made of gold, silver or bronze and feature colourful gemstones in a variety of shapes and sizes. They’re usually delicate in style, which makes them perfect for layering with other necklaces. Some designs are more modern, but many follow the traditional Slavic motifs that were common in 16th-century Ukraine. If you’re looking for something to make you feel like royalty, then Lora’s Treasures are perfect for you. The unique asymmetric design pays homage to both the ancient past and present culture and heritage of our people.
