What’s this episode about?
Researching thimbles in scholarly literature proved as disappointing as sewing needles: I found a two-sentence entry in an encyclopedia!
Turning to the web I discovered it’s rich if gapped history and beauty. Apologies for the amount of “stunnings” and “beautifuls” in this podcast but I couldn’t contain myself. As I looked at thimbles with Moorish inlay, embossed and drawn images, encrusted with jewels made of bronze and other metals, well, you’ll understand!
Tune in to discover that the evolution of thimble art was truly a mix of east and west.
Betrothals, gold, and the amazing worlds of the thimble!
