Dragonfly silver brooch by Mr. Shigetora Takahashi

Mr. Shigetora Takahashi (高橋茂虎)from Tokyo has developped  his silver making skills by self taught effort and he had been specializing in making unusual insects motif accessories  like a dung beetle and spiders etc.

He has still been accumulating the knowledge of making silver accessories and has still been developing his skills of making the, but I believe he has already achieved to the level where I can publicly introduce his works.

You can see various silver accessories he has created at my store, but this latest work should be worth being paid special attention to.


The size of the dragonfly brooch is about 5cm.

Let’s take a closer look.


The body part is chemically reacted to form the black coating on the silver surface and it is guilded with gold over that black coating. The gold is, then, removed by hand leaving these spots of gold.


When you turn it around, there is the pin as you can see.


The price is 20,000yen+tax
