Product Description

BEAUTIFUL, Zlatovez Pendant from Valpovo, Slavonija! We were so pleased to find this handicraft in Croatia this year....and it is the very highest quality we've seen, and at the best prices, too! This type of embroidery takes literally HOURS to make! Take a look at the accompanying videos which showcase this amazing technique and the skill that is rquired!

One of Slavonia’s most important artistic traditions is zlatovez, or gold embroidery (and, many times, SILVER) which gives the garments worn at folk festivals and events throughout the region a bit of the "Midas touch." Originally reserved for royalty and prestigious members of the Church, the craft has been practiced in Slavonija since before the 19th century and involves embroidering clothing with actual gold thread, creating intricate and beautiful costumes. The art takes part of the spotlight each year in Đakovo, at the annual Đakovački Vezovi festival, which celebrates the numerous folk traditions of the region. 

The ZLATOVEZ (embroidered) pendant is 1.75 inches in length and is 2 inches in width; it can be worn as either a pendant on a necklace/chain, or use the pin on back to wear it attached to a shirt, blazer, coat, scarf, etc. This pendant comes with a 24 inch, delicate black rope necklace; you can also use your favorite silver chain!

 

However you choose to wear it, it's a SHOW-STOPPER!
