Product Description

These ANGEL ORNAMENTS are all handmade and perfect in every detail! They measure almost 4 inches tall, and feature the Croatian Šahovnica (checkerboard) pattern. These have bodies that are filled so that they will also stand upright!

In a tiny village in the mountains of Gorski Kotar, we came upon a woman who works day and night to create THE most beautiful lace pieces we've every seen! This lace-making is a passion of hers, it is her form of self-expression, and it is an art form from Croatia that without a doubt should be protected and preserved. 

Crochet and lace making is an old folk art also known as "drawing" with a thread! Durda Pintar Janes learned this art as a small girl from her family and is mainly self-taught due to her enthusiasm and love of crochet.
