Zhostovo painting is one of the traditional types of Russian decorative work developed in the village of Zhostovo of Mytishi region, Moscow oblast. It appeared at the beginning of 19th century under the influence of Ural flower painting on metal.

Zhostovo painting is essentially drawing on metal trays preliminarily covered by several layers of thick putty and oil varnish (normally, of black color). The painting itself is accomplished in several consequent stages; soft brush and oil-colors (richly mixed with linseed-oil) create an impression of an energetic and elastic touch. Stylistic development of Zhostovo painting is closely related to Russian porcelain and enamel painting of Moscow region’s plants and factories, as well as with the flower motifs of printed Ivanovo cottons and P.V. Lukutin miniature.

The main motif of Zhostovo painting – a flower bouquet – is simple and laconic in its composition: larger garden flowers are combined with smaller wild flowers; the actual shape of a flower is conveyed through a three-dimensional painting technique; and all this is being brought together by a decorative richness of mufti-color solution closely related to the traditional Russian brush-painting on chests and distaffs.

Any of the cabochons in my shop may be converted to a necklace with the addition of your choice of a bail and neck chain or neck cord for a small charge starting at $2.50 depending on the style you choose. The very first listing in this shop is for that purpose. you may choose which ever type or color you prefer, just write your choices in "Notes to Seller" when you check out. If you would like any one of these cabochons to be a refrigerator magnet, I will add the magnet at no extra charge. Please add that to the "Notes to Seller" and I will be happy to do that for you.

I have also included a sample of how you or I could bead around one of these cabs. This is only a sample and the beadwork could be more or less intricate depending on your preferences.
I also love doing custom work and if you would like me to create a custom pendant for you with one of my cabochons in colors and a style of your choice, please do not hesitate to convo me to discuss your vision.

I use only the finest clearest glass to cover and adhere to beautiful digital art prints I have purchased. I go thru a process to create these and have painstakingly made sure they are of the finest quality. I myself use them to bead around to make pendants, brooches, bracelets and necklaces. I am including a picture in this listing of an example of how I have used these cabs. AND REMEMBER ALWAYS, BUY THREE, GET ONE FREE! Just purchase the three you want and in the "notes to seller" type in the number from the listing title of the one you want free and I will include it in your order! That is any three at all regardless of price!

This cab is a domed round 1.5" inch.
