    Custom made "stone", not a true repair, I only thought this antique pastes dog collar slide (big boy... 2.6" wide, 30 grams!) needed a complement to wear it as a pendant????.
    Made with crumpled compressed tin foil adapted to the size, one layer of UV curing hard resin, colored with brown permanent marker, a thin layer of " galaxy staring" nail UV gel and finally another coat of UV resin.
    It gets in force in place and is secured from the back with small points of resin, so I can get it off with no damage to the mount if needed.
    Now looks like boulder opal ;-)

      I’m not a big fan of butterfly brooches, ( there are just too many). But this piece is in a class all it’s own. First off, it’s antique, long before the 1000’s of butterfly’s were made. Second, THE DESIGN IS DIVINE! Love how the “feelers” and not straight but curved down to her (this has to be a lady, she is that beautiful) double wings! Third, she is huge! For all to see her better. Pascale, she is just lovely with her new “body”. Once again, you worked your magic!

      Aww, thank you Eileen!
      Yes old and BOLD... Ladies needed a girafe's neck to wear such a beast as a dog collar :-)) Perhaps the reason it is in as new condition...

      The Cabochon that you made for this piece, but even without was still a winner. Love what you did, and I know when you create something new from a piece there is a magic there that when you are young especially, you feel top of the world. I have a whos that coming up, hope you catch it. This piece now is a true winner, no limit to your talent !~

      This piece looks really big- it'd make a great statement piece, but I can't help wondering is she more of a bee shape rather than a butterfly shape?! I think it's the long body that makes me think bee but its very nice- the green eyes and the green/brown stone are great!

      I so much love your improved version. A stunner and typically excellent kyratising!

      Phil, thank you! It is always heartwarming to read your compliments! XO

      LaurenRedmond, thanks! It is the antennae which made me say butterfly... One or the other, I call all these critters BZZ BZZ :-D

      Karen, thanks! Right, this is only an improvement, and I too prefer it with a completed body ;-))

      Mary, thanks! Yes, it needed big beads to go with its jumbo size, lol!

      Love back to all of you, 18 BZZ BZZ lovers <3
