    Six years! That is how long I have been looking for this piece! When I saw this piece online, I literally gasped out loud! Ha! ! Thought I was seeing things! This ultra rare dolphin is from the “ Sea life” collection that I am almost done completing. He is deep red, fuchsia, and purple, with AB accents. His tail, fins, and nose are made of deep red slim navettes, and not a chip anywhere! Nearly 60 years old and in mint condition! Zoom in and look at his “flowerette eye”, even the tiny rs surrounding it are prong set! Total D & E quality. He is 3 1/2 inches in length. He was quite pricey, but the seller actually accepted my offer almost immediately! I have been very lucky in that regard lately! Now for the last piece, the Sea horse, which pops up quite often. Waiting for the right colors...

      Congratulations, Eileen! What beautiful piece, and group of brooches. The colors and workmanship are stunning. Well done!

      This beauty really adds to this aquatic collection, the whole collection is a must for you and should be. I especially love the crab and lobster but this one alone has its charms and collectible colours too !~

      Congratulations, Eileen, what a wonderful collection!
    11. Andreamw, 5 months ago
      What a great collection! I'm so glad you found one of your "grail" pieces! That lobster is amazing, but seeing them all together is even better.

      Clever use of words from our poet..Vynil. Thank you for loving my dolphin!

      Patricia, my Father was a commercial fisherman, and all the times I went out with him, I never spotted a dolphin! But I’ve seen whales and basking sharks bigger than my Dad’s boat! Thank you for that pleasant scenario!

      Thanks Scott, I still can hardly believe he’s mine! The seahorse is fairly common, it’s the certain colors I’m looking for..ugh, picky me!

      Dave...Ha! Funny! One thing about D & E, there is always a piece to hunt down. But my days are spent around my grandchildren, not sitting at the computer. Thank goodness!!!

      Thank you Katherine for the love, and commenting on my dolphin. So kind!

      Mani, yes, these little ( pricey!) critters certainly do bring on the bling. Thank you dear!

      vetraio50, thank you! I feel I just made it over a big hurdle finding this piece!

      Kevin, thank you for the wonderful comment and support. One to go!

      Phil, Yes, the crab and lobster are my favorites too. I think it’ the beautiful “watermelon” (sometimes mistakenly called heliotrope) crystal in their centers! But the size and color of this dolphin makes up for it, he’s 3 1/2 inches! Thank you my friend, you know how I feel about you commenting on my pieces!

      Thank you MrsT.! From one who has one of the most extensive collections on CW, your comment is so appreciated!

      Andrea, you are so kind! My wonderful Daughter bought me that lobster just out of the blue!

      Mary, my dear friend. On Karla Wacker’s website.Isitjulianajewelry, there’s a seahorse with blues and pinks! That’s the one I want! Ha! Not asking for much! I don’t want one with a lot of AB, and one color but I might be looking for some time. Then again, one other might catch my eye..just keep looking!

      Fresh Air, as a collector of D & E , you DO know the feeling of finding an extraordinary piece!
      Such as that incredible dainty necklace you just posted! Such a treasure!!

      Thanks Pascale, I nearly flipped out of my seat when I spotted this piece! I had almost given up on finding this one. Never say never!

      Lori, my friend! PERFECT is the “ perfect” word to describe my dolphin! Ha! Thank you so much!

      Bill, my northern friend, thank you so much! I still can’t get over that “C” cab truck you found! I have never seen one before, now that’s a treasure!

      Karen, thank you! Yes, D & E made some really nice figurals! My next hunt is for the “on the branch” figurals! Gonna be a tough one, as they too, are becoming harder and harder to find. But that’s the excitement, finding something very few have the honor of owning! Like your Japanese glass!

      Leah, so glad your back with us! The seahorse is my final piece! But like I told Karen, I already have another collection in mind!

      Once again, thank you all for your wonderful & sincere support! You are all amazing friends here on CW!

      Congratulations Eileen! Can't wait to see your seahorse. I'm sure it will come bobbing along. Persistence pays off. Beautiful bright collection of spectacular, rare brooches.
    20. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 5 months ago
      Awe thank you Maureen for such a wonderful comment. These have been a challenge to acquire. I was recently told by a D & E expert that the turtle belongs to the sea life collection too! So two to go, but the turtle is everywhere and in different styles. The hardest to find was the dolphin. I sent a pix to my expert friend and she was amazed I found one as she has been looking ( for me) for all these years and never came across one…she was so happy for me!
