Unique Thimbles for Sewing (or not sewing)

Do you own a thimble? Maybe you have a basic cheap one stuffed away in some sewing kit box?

Well, take a look at some thimbles that are also a piece of art! They are collectible, look cute on any shelf, and they will brighten up any mundane sew-on-a-button project. 

Grab a thimble for yourself and your friend; they are great as a unique gift for any crafter in your life.


In a DIY type of age, a thimble might just come in handy when you least expect it...

The thimbles pictured above are made of German silver and painted enamel, known as Rostov Finift, a traditional Russian craft used for many things including jewelry. (Traditional Russian Jewelry)

The art of Russian Enamel painting, named “Rostov Finift,” originated and flourished in Rostov since the 1700s.

These hand-painted floral thimbles are just so pretty, don't you think? And then there are hand-painted wooden thimbles, too:

Hand-carved, hand-painted, and signed by a talented Russian artist who specializes in miniature painting techniques. These adorable cat theme thimbles are perfect for cat owners who need to repair some scratched up materials! ;)

All of The Russian Store's thimbles are considered collectible. Happy Shopping!
