Time travel

Yesterday I stayed most of the day at the National Museum of Korea. I was so eager to capture all the ancient jewelry on camera! It was such a rewarding visit! Here are some impressions:

Outside the museum

Gold earrings, 5th-6th century

Fluttering hairpin

Worn around the neck. A chest ornament covers the entire chest. Strands of sparkling gold beads contrast beautifully with thousands of dark blue glass beads threaded together in 6-7 rows.

Celadon box for cosmetics. 13th century

Hope all have a lovely Thursday!

Beautiful, I don't think we fully appreciate Asian fashion history, I really love how they kept the shape of the jewellery even though it was all broken :P
