This unique brooch, which I believe is crafted on leather, is fashioned with a hand painted sea foam and brushed gold background that features a large oval turquoise stone. From this beautiful stone, four gold tone moveable wires emanate, capped with circular turquoise stone balls. Above the oval is a striking gold braided oval boasting a turquoise center stone and a gold braided circle. This serves to draw the eye to this appealing and one-of-a-kind piece signed with the artist's initials, MPC, and the year it was crafted,"88. It's an eye catching brooch with fabulous turquoise stones. Measuring 3" long by 2" wide, it comes in excellent condition. If you love your jewelry on the artistic side, you'll be thrilled with this unique "work of art."
