      I love this little brooch- I think it's my favourite item of your posts this week! His colours are so nice, very like a party theme maybe? :P I adore his pose too- I can see him sitting on a branch in the jungle combing his wing feathers and very VERY proud of them!

      This is a new designer to me. And his “feathers” do look like sequins! Once again, you have given us something new and wonderful to admire!
      Beautiful birdie!

      Thanks Lauren for the super compliments and insight, yes, this cockatoo certainly has a party look to it and it is something you could call "very 80s" with its bright disco colors! He does look as if he could be preening on a branch too, he would certainly get noticed!

      Eileen thanks so much for the lovely praise, found this designer's jewelry while looking at a birdie website then researched her, she mostly did 80s pieces and this was one of her prettiest. She has the cockatoo head tilt down, birds are always observing in just that position, and the colors are so cheery

      Thank you Ken for seeing the cuteness here, I appreciate the fab compliment & glad you liked this flashy bird

      MrsT thank you so much for the great compliments, I'm so glad to be able to show a new vintage designer once in awhile and really like this lady's work, she had some very stylish pieces
