These boots were made for Bling.

Boots with bling

Wow! I have been doing some research on jewellery trends and stumbled across this fantastic pair of boots on http://njn.typepad.com/10x/ – a jewellery trends blog.

Jeweller and gemologist Susan Eisen was commissioned to work on this special edition pair of Tony Lama boots.  100 diamonds have been added to the boots and they feature  & they feature 14-karat gold buckles. The boots celebrate 100 years of Tony Lama boot making – fantastic!

The detail worked into the leather reminds me of filigree and I can see a strong connection between the jeweller and boot making.  Being the curious sort I had to head over to Tony Lama Boots (tonylama.com) and  learn some more, beautiful – perfect for a Korcula winter…..

It brings me joy to see traditional skills & crafts being utilised and preserved for future generations.  I have been looking into the Seba families jeweller heritage and can’t wait for my father-in-law to return to Korcula and share some of his memories of jewellery making with us (& you).

There is a great story about Seba jewellers making a crown for the King of Serbia – I am looking for a copy of this photo at the moment and look forward to sharing it with you in a future post.
