I found this pendant today. It is unmarked and feels a lot like the little rose next to it in the second photo. The little rose is made of ivory and was part of a huge necklace. It belonged to the mother of my best friend - and she let us take it apart and play with the pieces. The rose in the centre was more than an inch. I got one of the smaller ones to keep.

The little pansy looks like it was worn on a ribbon, rather than on a chain. It doesn't feel like plastic. Can anyone help?

Thanks for looking:)

    Thanks Moonstonelover and mustangtony:)

    Moonstonelover, have you ever seen something like this?

    this is either carved bone or carved tangua nut -- i would guess bone however due to the straightness of the striations -- very pretty

    Thanks a lot epson233. I guess it is really hard to tell from a photo. I guessed too that it was carved but I have never seen seen neither of the two materials you mentioned before.
    Thanks again:)

    I love the little rose. I had a pair of clip on earrings like that but lost one. If I come across the other I'll see if I can find any markings on it.
