I Love, Love, Love BIRDS! They bring us JOY everyday and come into our world and interact with us each day to help us forget our day to day worries. I have made and sold a couple of these Bird Watching Necklaces in the years I have been making jewelry but I think this one is SIMPLY STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL, mainly because all the ELEMENTS I used to make it are THE BEST QUALITY of any I was able to purchase in the PAST! I found this Lovely Victorian Hand Painted MOP Brooch with a Sweet Swallow in flight, and 3 Tiny Pink Rosebuds with Green Leaves right below the Swallow to use as the main centerpiece of this Necklace. The Swallow has its Wing tipped in Blue with a Bit of Deep Red at its throat! I have seen a few of these and I have to say this one is in the most PRISTINE CONDITION I have ever seen! I doubt this Brooch was worn much it was most probably kept tucked away in a drawer. The Brooch has a Glass Dome that really MAGNIFIES the Glowing Shimmer that comes off the MOP Background of the Brooch. The Brooch Pin in the back had to be removed and as you can see in the photo the Patina on the back once the pin was removed shows a shiny brass underneath which confirms the Brooch age. Over the years the brass deepens to a Warm Dark Patina. I could not believe it when I found this RARE Victorian dyed PINK MOP Binoculars! Usually when you see these Tiny Binoculars for sale they are either made of Silver, Celluloid or Bone and are inexpensively made to be a Bracelet Charm. These Binoculars are a tiny bit bigger and they are just made with better materials and the quality of these are better than the usual Tiny Vintage Binoculars for sale. These Binoculars are Gold Filled not Brass like most other Tiny Binoculars are made of. And I am pretty sure these were made to wear as a Pendant not to be used as a Bracelet Charm. The Metal has a bit of a Rosy Tint to it that doesnt show too well in the photos I took. Usually these Tiny Binoculars are dated to around the 30-40,s but I have verified that these are actually from the VICTORIAN ERA and this explains why they are so well made. Also the Gold Filled Metal completely covers the top part of the Binoculars, you never see that in the other Binoculars. Normally there is a thin small Frame that holds the Binoculars with no Metal covering the body of the other Tiny Binoculars. The Binoculars are in Wonderful Condition with only 1 of the Tiny Caps missing on one side at the Bottom of the Binoculars. This is not apparent when looking at the Binocular. The MOP still has its GLOWING SHIMMER OLD MOP gets. These Binoculars are the most expensive Binoculars I have ever purchased to make this Necklace. I wanted to use very special Cultured Pearls to make this Necklace and these are some of the Best Quality Pearls I have ever used in my jewelry making. I used with Oxidized Sterling Silver Wire with these GORGEOUS Large 10mm-13mm Champagne Colored Pearls that have Hints of RAINBOW COLORS in there LUSTRE! If you look closely at the photo with the Hands holding the Necklace you can see the Hints of Pink Color! These PEARLS are Round and completely Smooth without texture to them. The Warm Colors in the Pearls work well with the Deep Brass Frame of the Brooch! I have also added an 3 Old Vintage Mop Bead in the Necklace near the back and as well a MOP bead next to the Fleur de Lis charm. The Clasp is a Thick Hammered Sterling Silver Oval Piece that hooks into a Recast Victorian Silver Plated Hand Holding a SERPENT Hook, so FUN! The Sterling Wires, Connectors, Fleur Charm while not Hallmarked have been tested as Sterling Silver. The Necklace measures 25 inches long and has a Large Link Sterling Silver 3 inch extension chain. A Tiny Sterling Fleur de Lis Charm hangs at the bottom of this Chain. I wanted to pick up the Pink Colors in the Necklace so added a few Champagne Pink Shimmer Ribbon to the Necklace.
