Season’s glitterings! Christmas jewelry #3

pin

I see your “ginormous” poinsettia pin and up the ante, Luray. Now this is a truly ginormous pin–a vast and eye popping 4-3/4 inches across.

The leaves are carved chunks of shell, deeply textured and deliciously iridescent. I love iridescence.

The center beads just might be plastic. Or glass. The center bead is jadeite green!

No idea who made it or when.

I do know it was a special gift from Luray! And it looks stunning on the shoulder of my thick, charcoal gray winter coat.


Season’s glitterings! Christmas jewelry #2

This ginormous (three inches across!) poinsettia will never be fussy about a cold draft or drop its leaves untidily on the floor.

The bracts (leaves) are silver metal with an interesting frost effect. The flowers are a ring of red rhinestones.

Simple. but so striking.

Unmarked, so no idea of maker or age.
