Reliquary

Standard

Her Twin crossed over to the dark side?

Do you know?  I have no idea, either.  I love the way the picasso drops on the outside look like old bones.  A reliquary for some long lost saint, perhaps.  Something from the Victorian era, with their odd mementos and hair jewelry?

As brooches go, this one is rather petite.  The central cameo is about an inch high, with the beading it’s maybe 1 1/2 inches total.  Small enough to wear on just about anything, but sure to cause a second look, and even comments.

Besides the drop beads, there are 11º opaque seeds in black and some 15º triangles in a lustrous eggshell.
