This has to be the most outragious Mid-Century Modern brooch I have come across... totally Cosmic, totally Joan Jetson. I love it! It is made of curved bits of wood interspersed with rectangular pieces of colorful abalone, all strung on elastic. Absolutely fun to wear and a true conversation piece. One of a kind, circa 1950. Condition is great. Slight imperfections to the shell which is natural not flaws. A lovely bracelet for that special someone. Bold, chunky, BEAUTIFUL!
