Najeon Chilgi - Mother of Pearl inlaid laquerware - is a time-honored representative art form of Korea that has been practiced for over a thousand years. The painstaking process is done completely by hand to create a gleaming surface with stunning illuminated inlaid scenes delicately cut from select pieces of Nacre - pearl oyster or abalone, that are designed and prepared using traditional techniques. The natural beauty and iridescent luster of Nacre is highlighted and showcased in the unique one-of-a-kind finished product. Najeon Chilgi is used to decorate and enhance jewelry boxes, desks and bedroom and household furniture.
