|Gold Star Burst Brooch|
Gold Star Burst Brooch
This brooch is names for the star burst like pattern of gold rutile in the lower right of the stone. The rutiles are both gold and bronzy brown. This lovely faceted gemstone is a generous 25x18mm in size.
It is wrapped in 14k gold filled wire. The pin is manufactured from the frame that holds the gemstone and is oriented so that the brooch can be worn at an angle. The nature of the pin makes it suitable for a substantial loose weave fabric.
This piece can also double as a pendant since there is a hidden bail behind the wire work at the top of the stone.
There is an inclusion in the stone that is completely hidden by the wire across its face. If you look carefully from the side you may see it.
The brooch is 2 1/2 inches tall and 1 1/2 inches wide.
This brooch is made with a rare blue pietersite cabochon. The cabochon is wrapped in 14k gold filled wire.
There is a hidden bail on the back so that the brooch can double as a pendant.
The brooch has a second pin back running lengthwise on the cabochon so that it can be worn either vertically or horizontally.
The brooch is 4 inches tall and 1 1/4 inch wide.

Attitude Of A Peacock Brooch
Formed in Argnetium (non tarnish) sterling silver, this brooch holds itself proudly. The dichroic glass stone reflects greens, oranges, golds, blues like the feathers of a male peacock. I like to make my brooches versital, so there is a hidden bail at the top with room for a small chain if the owner wishes to wear this piece as a pendant.
Argentium sterling silver is a relatively new tarnish resistant sterling silver created by Peter Johns. You will never have to work to return the wonderful silver shine the bracelet begins with. Clean this handcrafted bracelet as you would any jewelry that gets a bit dirty - with a non-corrosive jewelry cleaner (such as Jewel Brite) or a personal model sonic jewelry cleaner.
The brooch is 2 inches long and 1 1/16 inches wide and can be pinned at any of several angles, making it a very versital piece of jewelry.

Pink Lady Pearl
If you like jewelry that can serve more than one purpose, this brooch/pendant is it. The pin for the brooch is manufactured from the back of the frame for the jewel, and there is a small, discrete bail hidden at the top so that this lovely piece can be worn as a pendant.
The centerpiece of this brooch is a very large (35x15mm)cushion cut marquis rose quartz set in a 14k gold filled frame. The stone is surrounded by 15 beautiful pink stick pearls giving the brooch a somewhat antique and somewhat ethic flavor.
This is a heavy piece, suitable for wearing on a substantial, loosely woven jacket or dress. The pin at the back has a plastic earring back to cushion the wearer when worn as a pendant.
Comes with a 14k gold filled snake chain.
