    Today I show you my latest 2 acquisitions Rare Pietra Dura Fly brooches set in 14K gold. One round and one oval shape. Together with my Micro Mosaic gold fly ring I have a little fly nest besides the cicades.

      Is the background ivory? The new flies look like a mix of inlay & etching for the legs? Where I live, among teenagers, 'fly' is a term of approval. These are definitely fly.

      cameosleuth thanks for your love and comment. Pietra dura is a term for using cut and fitted, highly polished colored stones to create images. The stonework is glued stone-by-stone to a base after being sliced and cut in different shape sections; and then assembled together so precisely that the contact between each section was practically invisible. So the background is also stone.

      Hi! I have these same flies as earrings. Incredible as I’ve never really seen anything like them in the treatment of the wings, etc. They are the most beautiful things!

      endanubis thanks for your nice comment. Your flies earrings are they also made of Pietra Dura or Micro Mosaic?

      The Pietri dura—they are identical in size, shape, and composition. It took my breath away when I saw yours!
