December 9th - Handmade Designer Brooches from Italy

Elena Salmistraro is a young designer (and Jimdo user!) from Milan, and thanks to her contribution, we have yet another special giveaway for Jimdo's holiday blog. Today's gifts five elegant brooches in the shape of lotus flowers made by hand from Jacrocki.

Jacrocki is a special patented material, created by the company Okinawa. It's an ecologically-friendly material, composed of approximately 80% cellulose which is then mixed with recycled paper pulp and latex. it's stable, durable, flexible, so you can be sure your brooches will last! The brooches are about 2"-3" in diameter and can even be washed!


You can find more of Elena's creations on her website and on her brand Alla's site. Feel free to take a peek through her other work!
