    Today I am again very happy because I have managed to get hold of a
    18 K (not hallmarked but tested) Gold Micro Mosaic brooch/pendant made in the first half of the 19th century.
    This brooch/pendant is a beautiful delicate image of a butterfly and the whole piece is performed with very fine tesserae. The pictures speak for themselves I think.
    Measurement: The entire length including Appendix: 6.5cm
    Brooch diametre: 3.5cm - Length of the Appendix: 3cm - Weight: 12 gr

      kyratango, thank you for your nice comment and your loving. When I saw this pendant I also immediately thought: "That may come to my butterfly flowers" and that's succeeded. I am very happy with it, it's been a wonderful addition to my Micro Mosaic jewelry collection.

      Kyratango In my opinion it's a butterfly what do you think it's?
    10. kyratango kyratango, 8 years ago
      I'm not entomologist ;-) but I think too butterfly, definitely not an eagle, lol!
    11. Agram.m Agram.m, 8 years ago
      kyratango, Hi,hi, you are right but it is not such a convincing picture of a butterfly could also be another bug. But maybe that's because details of course difficult to carry out in Micro Mosaic although there are other beautiful examples.

      Wow, a cute as pie butterfly! So unique! Really nice!

      racer4fout, thanks for your message and loving. How nice that again I can convince someone of the beauty and craftsmanship of Micro mosaic jewelry. But as in this world every story has two sides. As a result, this jewelry is getting more and more popular and also more expensive!
