    Ms.Crystal…
    (105 items)

    Even though I am not a big fan of Sherman, the colors of hyacinth orange and olive green are just perfect for this time of year. The seller said this color combination was extremely rare. I don't care about rarity as much as, more importantly, how it looks. Which brings me to this...
    In the last two photos do you see the navette sticking out at the top from the top tier. This, to me, looks strange. If the maker would of turned the tier a quarter turn counter clockwise it would of set perfectly. Not to mention it can, quite literally, poke you while wearing it.
    Oh well, it will cool down soon where I live so I'll wear it on a coat lapel so as not to be impaled by my jewelry. :)
    ENJOY! just be careful...

      This set is so beautiful! I really love it! The combination of colors is delicious and I am sure you love it even as it pokes you :-)

      Valentino, your comment literally made me laugh out loud. I wore it today with an olive green blouse and I didn't get poked. What I did get was compliments, which is always nice.

      What a beauty!!!
      The colours must be a perfect fit with your olive blouse, you surely deserved the compliments and not being poked ;-D

      Ok, this is probably crazy, but those navettes on the leaves that are poking you, are supposed to be a bug? They kinda look like one to me.

      After looking at this brooch more thoroughly, I think it represents a bird! Yeah, that's it. The part sticking out would be it's head and the center is the body and then the wings. Maybe I'm wrong all together! ?

      Ha! Maureen,
      This was my first Sherman piece. I fell in love with the colors. If you saw it in person you could see it should of been set a 1/4 of a turn on top. It would of looked perfect. I'll never know what the maker was thinking. But now, Ken thinks it looks like a bird soaring, and I agree in a way. It's all a matter of interpitation...

      Armed and completely dangerous as most of the jewellery of the period. I don't think it is going to attack you however and the design looks like a hairy old moth, but fab as all sherman is. I admire the super rare colours also which makes this moth stand out.I am surprised no one is fighting you for this pece as we speak !~

      Ha! Ha! Phil...
      You made my day..."hairy old moth!"
      Yes, the colors are scrumptious, that's why I bought it :)
