I found this micro mosaic cross(second pic) this weekend at a yard sale. Although I m more in love with older jewelry, I always take this type of jewelry with me if I find it for cheap.
Agram M has a stunning collection really old micro mosaics, and she can tell you all about them.
I arranged my tiny collection just for fun from old till recent.
You can clearly see the tesserae grow bigger and bigger the more recent the jewelry gets.
I think my collection dates from 1880 till now. The oldest cross dates from around 1900, the more recent found cross dates from the thirties. , the banjo or mandoline is from the fourties, the celluloid handmade piece from the fifties, the round one with black tesserae could be from last year. ;-)
Hope you enjoy them!
Oops I just noticed I forgot one or two in my jewelry cabinet! Never mind
