We've all heard the old saying that "curiousity killed the cat." While the curious often get a bad rap, it is, in fact, curiosity that breeds creativity--the inspiration to try something new, something different, something seemingly outlandish. This charming design certainly encompasses a novel approach and fabulously-contrasting elements! A combination of black and white bone beads from Kenya and golden pewter form five strands around a stunning, oversized gilt brass bouquet brooch from the 1940s. Fastening with a gold vermeil toggle, this design measures 23" in overall length.
