Next up, we couldn't encourage color without including Kimili's Georgian Traditional Brooches. Made from Sterling Silver with Cloisonne Enamel, the long tradition of dinner and feast, called 'Supra' in Georgian language, served as an inspiration for Sofi Etsadashvili to create this Brooch.
Coupling old traditions with modern trends, brooches are not typically part of night-out attire so follow Kimili's steps and break traditional boundaries.
