    Rain today, so no Flea Market, and other plans got canceled, makes it a good day to stay inside and clean, polish, and photograph a collection of jewelry. Some I acquired recently, but most over the years. I tried to put up a selection of necklaces, pendants, and brooches, but this is me, I need more! :^) I added some rings, scarf or hat pins, why not a sterling money clip, or tie clasp, well it's raining, throw in some extra things to look at, even a tortoise shell hair comb, and a carved bone/ivory polar bear figurine. Yeah, it's just for fun, enjoy! :^)

    There's Sterling Silver, Silver Tone, Gold, Gold Plate, Gold Tone, Glass, Rock, Aluminum Bracelet, and Pewter Mickey Mouse.

    When I was polishing the sewing scissors, to go with the sterling thimble, one handle broke(oops), but I like their look, so still added them in, but I put the handle back the wrong way! Sorry.

    P.S. I did take some close up shots on some of the jewelry, so just ask, and I'll post some.

      It is pouring rain too here in Long Beach tonight. We haven't had a nice steady rain like this since....7 or 8 months ago. Drizzle - yes, but this is a strong steady rain.

      Thanks for posting your pictures. My favorite is the wonderful bracelet on the left. I love the bird brooch, polar bear and hair comb too - and the beaded rope.

      I like the bracelet too, but too small for me, and my wife doesn't care for it. I think it's aluminum alloy, or just aluminum. It's made nicely, but it has just a clip clasp, so kind of a skip in the pattern around it, I guess that's the way it could be sized. It looks good on, but be quick if your wrist is too big, or you'll get a pinch! LOL :^D

      Thanks for the Loves, and thank you all for looking!

      I really like putting these little collections together, to show, and to learn more about some of them.

      Oh valentino97, both the bird brooches are sterling, and marcasite. The one with wings back, like flying, in the center, is made in Mexico, so I put it with the other Mexican pieces, the little one by the antique polar bear, is standing on a branch and is just marked 925 on the back, a funny thing is it's got a red jewel by it's beak, like an eye, but the eye should be on the side of it's head, where there is a larger marcasite, that's the same size as the red one, it's cute though. I bought 2 of those tortoise shell combs, on the same day, the other is fancier, older, and very fragile, so I didn't unpack it, but this one has a nice look, just plain.

      Enjoying it again - thanks for the descriptions! Would like to see your other hair comb. I love the little Aztec (or Mayan or Peruvian) guy silver pin between the blue/silver drop earrings too. Fun!
