    kyratango
    (418 items)

    This very ancient chinese work was called Tian Tsui, Google for seeing wonderful intricate examples.

    The feathers pieces were glued on metal, looking like cloisonne, but far more fragile!

    Big lacking on the hair pin, all gone on the drops :-(

    Needed kyratisation!

    I finaly found the right color and texture painting in a nail art kit!

    There is the result :-)
    Central pendant was near perfect.

    I'm in love with the combo with the woven coral ! ! !

      Hello, I ,love this Kingsfisher feathers work and the combination with coral is even more beautyful! I like to ask your your knowledge on jewelry I posted already years ago on CW. Please take a look on them under link:
      http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/24376-gegorgian-or-victorian-cobalt-blue-ename?in=collection-1746
      I like your opinion on the brooch with hidden compartment and please your opinion on dating the round Rose cut brooch because I see the eagle's head but not good enough to date:
