Babushkas :: Bonecas de Lenço

Lately I have created a few more brooches inspired by babushkas, a Russian figure representing women usually with a headscarf under their chin.  They also remind me of the traditional dressing of Portuguese women from the countryside in their colourful headscarves with floral motifs. When I make these characters I always try to get that charming mood into each one. I like to use bright colours with lively patterns to make them unique. I hope you enjoy them!

These brooches are available to be made to order in your favorite colours!

Nos últimos tempos fiz mais algumas pregadeiras inspiradas nas babushkas, uma figura russa que representa mulheres com um lenço na cabeça. Estas figuras fazem-me pensar nos trajos tradicionais das mulheres do campo em Portugal, com os seus lenços em padrões garridos. Quando faço estas peças tento sempre pôr um pouco dessa atmosfera encantadora em cada uma delas. Gosto de usar cores vivas com padrões alegres e tornar cada uma delas única. Espero que gostem!

Estas pregadeiras tambem estão disponíveis por encomenda nas vossas cores preferidas!
