Since you asked:

"Therefore, to be possess'd with double pomp, to guard a title that was rich before, to gild refined gold, to paint the lily,
to throw a perfume on the violet, to smooth the ice, or add another hue unto the rainbow, or with taper-light
to seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish, is wasteful and ridiculous excess."

~William Shakespeare,
ca. 1595

Yup, that's us.

Pearls upon pearls....

You can imagine how thrilled I was to get a call about this wonderful treasure trove...all old stock hand carved mother of pearl from the 1930s, with exquisite detailing and patterns. It's always at the top of my list when I go out hunting, and to have this much of it show up at one time was just phenomenal...

The lot~ which came to me in two different batches ~ included earrings and brooches, strands, bracelets, necklace sets and two sizes of hand carved crosses with their original bails. I hope to have time to steal a few of these away and create with them myself...
