Lovely brooch with vintage glass beads, Swarovski crystals and glass pearls. I set each rhinestone one by one and attached them with thin wire. Vintage (1980's) crystal rhinestones used here were made by Swarovski in red color of Siam. These cream colored pearls were handmade in Japan in 1950s! In the center of the brooch is a gorgeous Swarovski crystal stone that sparkles and shines!
The round blue beads used in this brooch were made in France. Probably between 1910-1940, but the company of Bapterosses started to produce beads already in 1860s. These are sometimes referred as trade beads for majority of them was produced for African market. Or porcelain beads for it's shiny look that comes from unique process of making.
All metal components are antique copper plated and new. The needle has a safety mechanism and this brooch is signed.
