    I’ve been doing a lot of lurking in the Show and Tell and decided to jump back in. I love it when you all share your treasures! This little brooch belonged to my 2x great aunt. I’m guessing 60s-70s. It looks very similar to a signed Miracle Celtic knot brooch that I’ve seen online, although a little clumsier. The color had worn off of most of the “agates”, so emboldened & inspired what I’ve seen the folks here do, I added little black and blue ink to bring some of the color back! The last picture is the result of my efforts. Now that scarf and sweater season is coming back, I’ll be wearing it!

      I thought you were going to say that you had the stones replaced. Your ink trick was just what it needed and less expensive than new stones, but looks just as good!! Nice job!
