Season’s glitterings: Christmas jewelry #13

Unlucky 13!


This tree pin has space for seven sparkly rhinestones. Six rhinestone candles, plus one bright blue star on top.

Seven’s a lucky number, right?

Alas, two of the little rhinestone candles have gone missing.

Boo! Hiss! I hate it when the rhinestone-thieving elves show up at my house!

It’s a pretty pin anyway. Someday I’ll find some modern stones to repair it.

The candle flames are dabs of red paint, and the center one has rubbed off completely.

2 1/4″ from pot to treetop. Marked “B.J.”
