Another one for my personal collection. I found this in a small antique shop for $14. I had a non-jewelry friend with me who swore it was the ugliest thing she had ever seen. I told her I would have to revisit the pros and cons of our friendship at a later date. SHE reminded ME that we were due to have a brunch in an hour and that she was paying. I suddenly remembered we were supposed to practice forgiveness. I decided to become the bigger person. But first, I had the most beautiful and unique brooch to buy! The beads are carved and they‘re glass. It’s very deep. Easily a quarter inch, if not a little more, separates the back from the deepest part of the front, which is so unique to me as I’ve not seen something like this before. The chain that connects the three beads is so thick and nice! It’s the type of work you see on really high end jewelry nowadays. This is what I love about old jewelry. Their middle of the road stuff is comparable, in workmanship and attention to detail, to our high-end jewelry today. Would it be that we cared enough to do that again!!!
