Mother of Pearl Art

For centuries, Korean artists have mastered the art of najeon chilgi, transforming ordinary lacquerware into dazzling works of beauty. Using mother-of-pearl from seashells, they create intricate designs of nature’s wonders, such as flowers, birds and butterflies.

Norigae

Norigae is a typical, traditional Korean accessory that is hung from a woman’s jeogori goreum (coat strings) or hanbok chima (skirt) and so on.

Three parts norigae with bat ornaments
A norigae can be divided into 4 parts: the ddidon (hangul : 띠돈) a hook (either a separate accessory or additional knots) to attach the norigae to the hanbok, the paemul (hangul : 패물) the main ornament of the norigae, the maedeup (hangul : 매듭) the knots of the norigae, and the sul (hangul : 술) the tassels.
