Fascinating brooch from Gerard Yosca features a mixture of elements including glass stones in a plated setting, as well as wool strands emanating from the center. The back is signed as shown on an oval cartouche. This is quite a large brooch, measuring 3 inches in diameter. It is in fine condition with no issues. Great statement piece, especially for the fall! This reminds me of the Prada brooches that employ fabric and rhinestones in breathtaking and imaginative combinations.
