    Jewellery made with scottish stones inlaid in silver was fashionable during Victoria's reign since she loved so much her residence there.

    Now, these pieces are very collectable.

    I grasped this poor froggie, with old repairs on back and lacking 5 inlaid pieces of jasper and one eye....

    4.2cm or 1.5/8" long
    3cm or 1.1/8" wide

    My usual baking polymer clay wasn't usable on this, because the "glue" used to fill the hollow piece and hold the stones is a kind of resin/bitumen which bubbles and flow everywhere when heated....

    So I tried an air curing clay to fill the lacks, domed it, colored with the now famous permanent markers and coated with Judikins Diamond glaze.
    The replacement eye was domed thick with a drop of "diamond glaze".

    3 hours work... ;-))

      Amazing restoration!
      What does the mark underneath read?
    10. kyratango kyratango, 3 years ago
      Hi Maryh1956!
      Thanks for the compliment, and for asking about the mark :-)

      It is British design registery mark, for:
      I: metal items
      W: year 1865
      M: month june
      17: day 17
      The hole is where was the number of the parcel...

      Thanks I thought it it looked like a registry mark, which I have seen on pottery but not on metal. You learn something new every day!

      So a new lab teacher in school brought in some frogs for her class to do experiments on for a final grade in her class … so Johnny decided to test its hearing, So he cut off a leg and told the frog to jump and it did … so he wrote it down , then he cut off another one and said frog jump … and it did … and then the third one was cut off as well and he wrote it all down …well got to the forth leg and cut it off and told the frog to jump ., but it didn’t,.. So Johnny pounded the table and screamed frog jump … but nothing happen,.. So he sign off on his written test,.. stating “ that after four leg being cut off the frog becomes deaf…..smiling .. enjoy the day … nice frog…
