Oregon jewelry artisan and friend, Jan O’Banion made this gorgeous ReArt Tin and Mixed Metal Hummingbird Breastplate. I love her attention to details and her creative imagination of putting all these pieces together to form this one-of-a-kind work of art…with all kinds of mandala-like shapes.
While this stunner of a gemstone may look like a ruby, it’s actually a 121 carat Rubellite Tourmaline…the largest known Rubellite in the world today. And it’s for sale. How much? If you have to ask, you can’t afford it. 🙂
How cool are these! What a fun collection of vintage brooches we have here…owned and photographed by Jenn Ski, posted on her flickr site
