  24. @valentino: my boyfriend didn't like this at all. He thinks its not enough stylised. And maybe he is right, but I like all things aquamarine so I bought it anyway.

  42. No, its some real flowers, set in some kind of resin. I have some tiny pendants made in the same way. No idea about how they are called, but I m sure they date to the sixties or seventies. There was ...
  43. Looks like 1969 to me...
  44. You are right, its Dutch,I dont know if its old. It reads something like: For celabrating the birth of...and for saying goodbye to the design of... Its Belgian! Wortel and Merksplas are near Antwerp.
