    Insect... brooch... pastes... wounded...
    That Bzzz Bzzz was for me!

    Cheap :-)

    There was a white stuff on the body, surely to hold in place a mother of pearl bit, easily removed in cleaning.

    But I had to buy an opal of right shape and mesurements to fit for the body... the boulder opal just arrived and is in place!

    4.2cm wide.
    3.2cm long.

    The clasp is an early safety one, around 1910.

    Marked 935.

    Et voilà :-D

      Beautiful but I'd watch that bird with all the insects around ;)
      Is it a pet or a saved wild bird? A magpie?
    17. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 5 years ago

      Judy, thank you ! I'm very glad you love it with the opal boulder tail :-)

      Vintagefran, I always watch my insects to keep them crawling or flying into some beak or dog's mouth, lol! Thank you :-D
      Djama was surely rescued by someone around here, as I fed her with dry cat's food when she landed on our table she stayed for a week around me. Now she fled to center of the village and enter through open windows for begging... hoping to have her back before she get in trouble...

      Shareurpassion! Thanks! This kind of body was in my mind when I found it, but was not sure to be able to get the convenient stone :-)

      Merci Rob, Bzz Bzz! ;-))

      Bijou, yes, a little too much for my taste now she is wandering in the village...

    23. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      Inky, Sean, Valentino, many thanks for loving the Bzz Bzz ;-)

      Valentino, yep, it needed some color! Surprisingly the seller didn't realise it was lacking the body part and was stumped by the white stuff (old plaster glue!)....
    24. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      Wow Kyra!! I think everyone else has already stated exactly what I was going to say.
    25. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      Scott! Thank you for what you were going to say!

      Radegunder, Scott, Sean, Buckethead... LOVE BACK TO YOU!

      Djama, is that her name? How lovely to be visited by such a beautiful wild bird.
    30. cindyjune cindyjune, 5 years ago
      So beautiful!
    31. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      Oohhh, so sorry for my late answer to your kind comment, Vintagelamp and Vintagefran :-/!
      Thank you both !

      Vintagefran, yes that's the name I gave her for the time she visited us, but she was raised/saved by someone else and flew to another place!

      Cindyjune, thank you for your visit and appreciation!

      Warm collective thanks to all of you, 38 Bzz Bzz lovers ;-))
