Guest Blogger – Ruth Seba and Traditional Filigree Jewelry Design

If you are interested in seeing some traditional handcrafted jewellery being made then a visit to Seba Dizajn, Ulica dePolo, would be an essential part of your visit to Korcula.
Seba Dizajn is located beneath Marko Polo tower, (Marko Polo’s Korcula home) and was opened by Adolf & Ruth Seba in June 2011 to showcase Adolf’s filigree jewellery skills.  The Seba family have been working with filigree jewellery for approximately 500 years.

We have put together a special package to show you the steps involved in creating our beads, and we will also offer you the chance to work with some of the fine silver threads we use to create our filigree jewellery.
Three different styles of medium sized beads have been exclusively created for this package and you will take home a stunning piece of Seba Dizajn filigree as a memento of your visit to Korcula and our studio.  We look forward to welcoming you into our store and sharing our traditional jewellery with you.

  2. How beautiful! I imagine it must take a while to produce such an intricate piece of art.

  3. Ruth Seba says:

    Thanks, and yes you are right there is a lot of time involved in creating each piece. We have had our studio open to the public for one year now and it has been great to be able to share the work that is involved in creating our filigree jewellery.
