Green Kalida Earrings

Tatting lace is an interlacing of rings and chains formed by knots, using fingers and a shuttle, which is particularly hard-wearing. This series of knots creates patterns, some of which can be extremely intricate.

This technique was very popular in the European courts of the 18th century. The ladies of the time appreciated its finery. They even crafted small pieces themselves in their drawing rooms, showing off their gracious movements.

Lorina Balteanu had the idea of incorporating glass pearls and semi precious stones into the lace. While enhancing the technique, she gives the lace a new sense of luxury, transforming it into a piece of jewelry.

Each piece is entirely hand-crafted by lacemakers from her own workshop who perpetuate this artistic handicraft.
