Black Brooch

Sofio Gongli

One-of-a kind large black brooch with two small birds on top. It is produced in the Byzantine Cloisonné enamel technique: an ancient decorative process dating back to the 12th century, which can only be carried out by hand, and consists of inlaying radiant colored treatments between strips of fine metal. Georgian jewelry designer Sofio Gongliashvili handcrafts her unique gold- or silver-plated pieces in her atelier in Tbilisi.
