Brooch of Many Stones.
This pin contains many elements
It is set on Sterling silver with my own hand made headpins.Tiny little black cellophane spacers used historically in African jewelry. Amethysts, Persian Turquoise,Garnets, Hematite, Malachite and Azurite. Takes a lot of collecting to have all these in the right sizes for the piece. I made this broach in about 1989 and have kept it in my personal collection ever since. I will keep a photograph so that pupils of mine can see how to make such a piece.
Have to let it go now. It's time. It's 1 1/2 inches across.
