DAILY SPECIAL - 25% OFF Mon 2/15 ONLY :: Vintage Alpaca Mexico Abalone Brooch Pin Pendant

This interesting brooch with a bail to use as a pendant was made in Mexico features a Mexican pyramid with what looks like a flame and altar at the top. Gorgeous abalone chips are inlaid in the black enamel background all surrounded in a warm silver-colored metal called Alpaca. Alpaca is a non-silver alloy (zinc, nickel, iron). Sometimes it is silverplated, however I am not sure if this piece is or not. A lovely and versatile piece!

By The He Sea

I don't even know where to begin with this stunning late '60s/early '70s find from Aunt Lydia's Rug Yarn Collection.  The title of this collection is "By the He Sea".  Even more disturbing than the back-of-the-couch-afghan style "Ripple Poncho" is the borderline inappropriate "Slip Over" in white and spice.  I shudder to think what he's sporting under that piece o' work.

Giving a go!

Trying out the new business hub, for my etsy shop. It connects my shop, blog, stats and tweeting in one place.

Giving it a go and will let you know how it works out before jumping in with a domain registration, etc. Let me know what you think...
