This week's earrings are these blue embroidered ones from my EST friend Judit from vadjutka on Etsy. As a traditional costume enthusiast and collector, I could not help myself buying these earrings.... These earrings are made from Kalocsa embroidery in Hungary, which is an element of the traditional costume in Kalocsa. Judit incorporates these traditional embroidery pieces into modern jewelry. A funny coincidence is that a piece of Kalocsa embroidery was the first thing in my own collection. When I was 7 years old, my father made his first business trip outside the country. He traveled to Budapest in Hungary and brought me a lovely piece of Kalocsa embroidery. I was thrilled by the colours and motives, and so it all started :) It still has a prominent place in my collection !
Look at some more of Judit's modern Kalocsa jewelry; isn't it delicious ?
