      That's a great little brooch, everything about it is lovely, I especially adore the colour he's in, it reminds me of the same iridescence you see on hummingbird's? A shimmering mix of blue, navy and green? I'm sure there's other bird of paradise tropical types that it's more like but I don't know their names...I can just see him sitting on a branch in some really wet rainforest!

      With thanks to you all for the love

      Thank you FreshAir for the super praise, I was really delighted to find this rare KF bird design and waited for it to arrive from England, the shiny colors are so pretty with that added sparkle on the breast that this company does so well & really happy you noticed these

      Phil thank you so much for the fabulous compliments, it thrills me that you liked my little blue bird and its lively coloring, it has tropical appeal as well as characteristics of our ordinary bluejay IMO

      Thanks Lauren for your terrific kind praise & insight about this bird's hummingbird type colors, yes absolutely that's so true! It does shimmer with that added sparkle, and wouldn't it be nice to see him on an early dewy rainforest morn glimmering on a branch, love that visual so much (when it was trendy years ago, I had all sorts of 'save the rainforest' collectibles)

      Scott, thank you for your fantastic compliment I'm so glad you saw the beauty here :)

      Thanks Katherine for your wonderful praise, yes this pretty birdie is quite the sparkler and I just love the way the teal & blues play off each other

      Karen thank you for your awesome fun comment, this co. made such pretty colorful pieces often in fantasy colors, before they really went off into dangling stars and other additions that really lived up to their 'folly' name, which I guess just meant this was a crazy sideline idea they had. It actually became quite lucrative for their family, but I much prefer their non-dangle designs like my pot o'gold & pegasus horse
