Today I was doing a bit of a tidy up, and had a closer look at her. OK she's only a black plastic brooch, but her hat and dress are chips of NZ Paua Shell which certainly make her shine, with other crushed stone to make the white of her skin and the 'diamonds' around her neck and hatband. All done in the cloisonne style, with gold wire making up the little 'fields'
All this on a cheap plastic brooch approx. 5cm long?
It is just so pretty.
