These pins are cut from a sheet of copper, shaped w/pretty aqua-blue ceramic attached. I have a number of masks too I posted last year. The crab is 2.25"x2" copper blackened.

Tragedy and Comedy theatre pins - 1.5"x1.25" are very special and worn when I go to a show my friends are involved with "off broadway" here.

As far as I can tell the ceramic is a glazed porcelain and I believe glued to the copper shape. Collectible because they chip easy so very exciting to find them in perfect shape. Happy hunting!

    Thanks Nadia - they are pretty neat aren't they? I really love the masks. I think I found those at the Long Beach swapmeet about 3 yrs. ago.

    In the Horoscope realm, Cancer being my sign, the crab its symbol!! Lol!! (I don`t listen to my or read my horoscope however). Thomas.
  18. valentino97 valentino97, 2 years ago
    Thanks Thomas for loving this. I'm a Scorpio and don't have ONE single jewelry item, no- except for the tacky 1980's dead scorpion in plastic belt buckle.... I need to find a nice sterling brooch or ring. I don't pay attn. to horoscope either, but I know where the constellation is.
  19. brunswick brunswick, 2 years ago
    Hope you find that Scorpion!! Thomas.
  20. valentino97 valentino97, 2 years ago
    ha ha! I am SURE I will. Do you have a Scorpions album cover to share? During the 70's, 80's I wasn't interested in heavy metal or hair bands so my boyfriend gets a real kick out of asking "who is this?" and usually I say Scorpions or Dio. Our first date in 2003 was at a Dio, Queensryche, Motorhead concert. I was a bit afraid but I liked Ronnie James Dio jumping around. He made the impression. Still with that boyfriend. I always win the Blues and old country music trivia against him. :)

    Val...The song Rainbow in the Dark is one of my faves!! I get a Scorpions out this week! Oh...Im following you now!! Why? Your too funny!! Thomas.

    Thanks and mostly for sharing our music history. I love your posts! We have a neat independent record store here "Fingerprints". Sometimes they have live music. Last night it was Benji Hughes. Well....his voice is carmel, smooth and certainly would not match up with the man....LOL....Bare belly and butt crack. He likes to work his crowd and we all sang with him. At one point he laid down on the concrete floor "nice and cool down here" and sang....then he couldn't get up and asked for "some big guys to help me please". Wasn't smooth and saw some more butt crack.....At first I was "what the f? is this?" that just as quickly changed to "what a voice and he loves to perform, loves his audience". Oh, and one more time big love to independent record and book stores everywhere....

    Val...That is a cool thing!! Thanks for that share!! I deal with a low key independent place here called Pops`!! It`s all done in 70s retro decor!! Thomas.
