    This 2" silvertone starfish brooch has a curved shape, with alternating sapphire & smoke blue rhinestone chatons framing five blue AB marquise stones in a cupped or raised design, by Gustave Sherman (1947-1981)

    Sorry pix a bit dark, had to avoid mirror glare from the AB stones

      Thanks Ken for the great compliments esp on these photos, it's a pretty brooch but the central ABs dominate the nice blues so I had to carefully keep it from direct light

      So grateful for the kind loves everyone

      I love the huge amount of claws on the larger stones, THATS quality !~
    3. Newfld Newfld, 5 years ago
      Glad you liked my Sherman starfish Phil, I tried not to let the AB stones overpower it, and yes I agree the prong setting is excellent

      Thanks so much for the love

      Phil thank you for the lovely compliment, I love Sherman & particularly the rare figurals like this one. None can ever top your amazing collection, each piece more beautiful than the last - you should write your own Sherman book someday :)

      Oh, goodness. Just seeing this, as I came back to see if Dawnlady1 posted tonight. Super beautiful style and colour, Jenni.

      Hi Daisy,
      Just caught your comment before signing off, thank you for the lovely compliments/love for this Sherman starfish, glad someone finally brought it back up again & you got to see it. I LOVE your post with the different Sherman starfish, this blue one has a lot of AB so you'll notice I underlit the photos so the blue would show up better. I love all ocean designs, well I guess you can tell from my profile pic lol

      Thank you Searching for the love for this Sherman starfish, I really love his work but as most are sold from Canada, I think I'd better wait til after the holidays to be sure they don't get lost in the Christmas mail siege :)
    25. Dawnlady1 Dawnlady1, 1 year ago
      So pretty. I must find one for myself. I call the many prongs “French claws” another collector refers to them a sweater rippers,, (LOL) either way they are fantastic and part of the beauty of this brooch!
    26. Newfld Newfld, 1 year ago
      Thank you Dawn for the lovely praise for this Sherman starfish, yes indeed it has awesome claws & you can be sure those stones will never fall out!! I had a trying time photographing this piece as the all AB stones were mirror reflective, it took alot of low lighting to bring out the beautiful blue
