For those for whom the adjectives splendidly eclectic and ferociously fierce are simply terms synonymous with their everyday sartorial sensibilities, we have this absolutely divine, savagely chic two-dimensional Hattie Carnegie leopard pin to add to their laundry list of incomparable accessories. This spectacular piece of wearable art features a panther in a transparent, yellow enamel that has been applied to a gold plated base metal foundation--the pictures just do not do it justice. The leopard's anatomy conveys its own sense of visual intrigue with a texture of thin repeating linear grooves complemented with both traditional spots as well as whimsical, bas relief, floral patterned spotting beautifully accentuated in clear Austrian crystals. To add to the magnificence quotient, we have an Austrian crystal studded collar and riveting green Austrian crystal eyes. The purr-fect feline for that veritably vogue lady...
