    Posting this for Gudrun although mine is not polished up nice and bright, I'm pretty sure this matches her brooch. 3/8" flowers by 6.75" long w/fold-over clasp. I had screw-back earrings to match, but they were 1/2" - too big for my taste. I sold them years ago. (Darn!)

    Popped out a stone - it is plastic with a pad - no doubt about it. Note pic 4.

      Thanks Gudrun - I love your brooch!

      So Lovely! Must be real turquoise stones. I want to believe it is in such a Beautiful piece. I´m enjoying that you are posting so many mexican pieces!! It´s my favourite, vintage mexican sterling jewelry.

      I wish it was turquoise but it is not.

      Beautiful, even if not stones!
      Spring is coming :-)

      Hi Lisa - yes, sad that it isn't even glass. Oh well still love it.

      Thanks Ken - I use an old Canon Sure Shot, outside! (vital) and without flash. The camera needs to be replaced. I think it's only a 10 mp. I think it has a decent close-up function.

      Thanks Kyra - yes! I plan to wear light colors and flower jewels soon :)

      Thanks everyone for the love.

      Hi Lisa - I know it surprises me too. I could put some stone cabs in here. That's a thought. Only if I run across them somewhere tho :) Maybe this is a lesser grade sterling. Wouldn't surprise me. Thanks, Mary

      Oh dear, I hate that I was correct about plastic. If yours is plastic, mine would be too.
      You have some nerves - taking it apart!
      I still like bracelet though. I think it would have to be put into a "different category", being not the real thing but it is still beautiful.

      Hi Lisa - Yes, by taking out the pad I'd lave a little more room to play with, could put some of my gemstone beads in there - what a good idea! Thanks. I don't plan to sell this item so might as well put my favorite color beads in there. Yes, I think it is sterling.
    10. valentino97 valentino97, 5 years ago
      Hi Gudrun - it was easy, just gently pried open the petals. Your's could be real or glass - I have a feeling many different versions were made of the flower design! I think I'm going to take Lisa's suggestion and put my real black onyx beads in. I wear black/sterling more than turq/sterling :)
    11. valentino97 valentino97, 5 years ago
      Thanks again Lisa for the idea!

      Thanks to all for the loves!

      Thank you Gudrun - very interesting. It looks exactly like mine. I am a firm believer of "buyer beware". And that's why CW is needed. I just bought some interesting red and black Lucite bangles from RL. Will post when they arrive.

      Hello,
      I do not want to be rude so please forgive me if I have done anything to offend. But I have seen on another page that the decision to sell is a personal choice but still not the purpose of this site. I want to ask in the kindest way possible that if you ever want to sell this bracelet (or trade) I will be more than willing to speak with you. email is timecapsuleforsale (at) gmail (dot) com. Thank you very much.
    15. valentino97 valentino97, 5 years ago
      Hello hopeful - I'm not offended. I have your email and will message you. I don't sell - but someday I'll have to! Thanks for your interest.
    16. freiheit freiheit, 5 years ago
      Mary, I am looking forward to seeing you post!
    17. hopeful, 5 years ago
      Thank you for keeping me in mind. Have a great day.
