Quilted Owl Brooches - Set of 3
Each little owl in this set of 3 brooches has been handcrafted through a process known as paper quilling. Artisans in Vietnam have mastered the art of cutting paper into long thin strips, then rolling and pinching them into different shapes before gluing them into place. Lean in close to appreciate how the rolls of paper mirror fine feathers. Magical.
