This is a pretty little vintage brooch or necklace pendant depending on how you choose to wear it. It looks great either way and would be a nice versatile piece to add to your jewelry collection. It is comprised of Alpaca (which is Nickel Silver and has no actual silver content) and abalone shell. It's a lovely piece and quite unusual, made in Mexico somewhere around the 60's or 70's. The piece measures 1.5" high x 1.5" wide.
