This Beautiful Vintage 4 Directional Pinwheel Brooch features a hand formed sterling silver scallop edge circle. The center is set with a tiny “snake-eye” turquoise stone which is the center of the pinwheel. Slightly curved hand-wrought sterling silver bars represent the (4) directions of the wind. The background behind the silver bars is purposely oxidized (darkened) to highlight the sterling silver.
The pinwheel is enclosed with a twisted sterling silver rope border. The next border is set with perfectly matched Natural Morenci Mine Blue Turquoise snake-eye stones, which are set in serrated bezels. The last outer border features sterling silver raindrops. The pin clasp is in perfect working condition.
Every piece of sterling silver decoration was individually hand-formed and hand applied to the base.
This is Lovely Feminine Pin Brooch for the lapel, pocket or wherever you wish to pin it.
