  1. Superb manikin and dress! Happy you decided it was time for posting! :-D XO
  2. Thank you Trey! :-))
  3. Pretty!!! You didn't tell the size... But it seems the wires are out of shape legs! I suspect it is an ornament\display bauble, as I don't see any trace of findings for wearing it as jewelry :-)

  5. Thank you Scott! Right your alley, uh? ;-))

  19. Charming and collectible piece! Mid 19th, category Victorian accessories (?) Or "objets de vertu" in French, "Porte bouquet". It seems the handle is ivory, and right, missing a chain and ring :-)
  20. Nice Chinese export piece! Yes, jadeite, older pieces (garment ornaments) were mounted on these filigree jewels for Westerners during the 1920s till 1950s. Later they used modern cabachons.
  21. Ta daa! Here I am ;-)) As you intend to display it only, I'd have a try with acrylic paint, mixed to match the shell color, applied carefully only on the damaged part, then once fully dry brush it wi...
  22. Great hoard! Isn't it satisfying to come back from hunting with things you'll take time to clean and see what beauty was hidden under tarnish! I find it is a big part of the joy :-))
  23. Very, VERY nice find!
  24. You're welcome! and... Welcome on CW :-D

  45. Nice!!! Merry Christmas dear friend! XO
  46. Thank you! Since I "kyratised" many pieces during past 10 years, I'm not a total novice ;-) Now, I may invest in a stabilized L.O.S gel and give it a try on practice pieces!
  47. Ahhh, applying patina again when it had previously been all removed makes the details stand out! Can you share what method you use? For the antique jewellery pieces I get awfully dipped, I use the h...
  48. Superb work! How I agree with you with patina vs tarnish subject. Buying mainly antique jewelry, I'm in despair with tarnex dipped pieces... Always struggling to restore patina in recesses!
  49. Wooh, silversmith, that's a huge compliment for my kyratisation using a cake mold! Thank you! :-D
  50. A beauty! As lovely as you! XO
