Det er flott med sølvbelte:) Frå gamle dagar heiter det at det berre er gifte kvinner som kan gå med sølvbelte til Sunnfjordbunaden (som eg har). I dag brukar "alle" det. Eg synest ikkje at eg kan forsvare å bruke så mykje pengar på det, sidan eg ikkje brukar min bunad så ofte... uff, det er vel eit par år sidan sist eg hadde den på!
I may very well go a few years too without wearing it, but I will make every effort to wear it on the 17th of May!Interesting about the married women in the old days being the only ones that can wear the silver belts. I like that and I am very married!
Chaque pays a ses traditions et son orfèvrerie, c'est remarquable cette ceinture et ces bijoux. J'attends de voir ces magnifiques ornements portés.Très belle semaine à toi et les tiens :)
The belt will be a little trickier to wear, but I did wear the earrings and pin to work today. I felt so Norsk and so loved! :-)
How beautiful these are - I love silver and anything filigreed or embossed. Now I see why the Norwegian sweaters have such beautiful intricate metal clasps - it's all part of the same theme.The brooch reminds me a bit of some Native American jewelry. :)
That may explain why the NVO liked them so much, as well. He speaks a little Navajo and went to UNM. :-) He loves the southwest stuff.
I don't know what Nordmøre Bunad means but this belt is amazing.
