About Ohrid Pearls
We create products for life that combine ergonomics, genuine ease, and elegant simplicity
Ohrid pearls are highly appreciated and sought after in the world. They are made of nacre and shells, which Talevi procured from abroad. Each grain of pearl they made by hand, which issue certificates. Before starting work, Thalev put the grains of pearl on toothpicks over wooden meter long table. Each grain is coated with special emulsion, which is a family secret.
We work only with natural materials. Even the brush with which we coat the pearls is made from fibers from squirel tail or horse. An emulsion has the same formula that bought my father and my uncle in 1924 - said KlimentTalev.
Each pearl is cover with emulsion five to ten times, and the time from one to another coating must be at least 45 minutes to an hour, to be well dried . Talev said it is not recommended to string pearls the same day they are made, but it is best to do so the next day.
