    Dear Valentino will love this Bzz Bzz ;-)

    Bought it in a lot of insect theme damaged costume jewellery, full of goodies!
    Some more to be posted...

    5.5cm long.
    3.3cm wide.

    I think it is from the 40's era.

    Full of grime, many rhinestones lacking-------> KYRATISED ;-))

    Last pic, from Google images, is one very similar, priced at 48£ at Grays Antiques.... woahhh ;-)

      Bonnie, thanks for your lovely comment :-)

      Vetraio, merci beaucoup ;-))

      Judy, lots of thanks too!

      Ho2cultcha, this one is right in your alley... cool, quirky and big. I'm sure you could wear it (on your creature of the lake suit... lol!).

      Scott, Gary, Mani... you're really too kind! Only a good clean, and glued flat back rhinestones! Big thanks for your constant support and loves :-)))

      You never run out of bugs to keep us dazzled, super love !
    11. racer4four racer4four, 1 year ago
      I'm sooo enjoying your new buzzies!! Well Kyratised too (of course). This plastic one really appeals to my bright and simple taste.
    12. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 1 year ago
      At first I thought you changed it from the first pic to the fourth pic! I was sitting here in shock, thinking wow, how did she do that??? haha It's very cool!
    13. kyratango kyratango, 1 year ago
      Phil! You know I'm totally bugged ;-) Thank you friend, XO

      Karen, this one is so funny and bright, I'll say, as Valentino, plastic is fantastic! Thank you for your kind comment :-)

      Shareurpassion, lol! I preferred to show the green one in pics rather to give a link to it... I understand why you were confused! :-D
      Thanks for your cool comment!

      Love back to you, all 22 red fly lovers!!!
    14. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 1 year ago
      OMG I just saw the most beautiful fly ever! Wow, I can't believe I just said that, haha. It's Native American and the "head" is turquoise. I thought of you immediately and am trying to get a photo of it for you. (It's on ig, that place is crazier than it is here)!
    15. valentino97 valentino97, 1 year ago
      Wonderful old plastic - bakelite? bug. So pretty, I like yours better than the green one :-)
    16. kyratango kyratango, 1 year ago
      Shareurpassion, for sure, I'd love to see that native indian fly!!! (Don't know what is ig...) thank you!

      Valentino! I knew you'd love it!!! Thank you for your lovely visit!
      Not bakelite, simichrome gave nothing yellow on the Q-tip... Pure plastic ;-)
      The green one seems to have lot of replacement stones... those eyes are not the best! It was the only one pic I found of a similar.

      Love back to you all 28 fly lovers :-D
    17. kyratango kyratango, 1 year ago
      Same one green, described as bakelite...

      I forgot to mention, the green one was featured in "Gems of Costume Jewelry" by Gabrielle Greindl - she dates it to 1938.

      Ig = instagram. Everything is so fast there and all these beautiful things just zoom right by you. Ya gotta be quick enough to catch them and then you have to stay fast in order to keep up. It's a place I knew I could go to promote my etsy shop, which I have all but left behind since anyway but hopefully for good reason. I think I've come up with something I know I love and can not find, so I'm going to give it a shot at making it! I'll show the results soon.
    22. raven3766 raven3766, 1 year ago
      Absolutely love it!
    23. kyratango kyratango, 1 year ago
      Yeah Valentino! 1938, wow! Thank you my friend :-)
      I forgot about Mike's post who got this book and shared some pages! The green fly is here:
      https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/183427-gems-of-costume-jewelry-part-two--in

      Shareurpassion, thanks for clarification ;-)
      I'll have a look in Instagram!

      Raven3766, many thanks for your lovely visit and comment :-D
