This turquoise brooch has pate de verre flowers mounted on a base of two large, textured, silver-tone lily leaves. Additional silver-tone beads and textured elements embellish the intricate design. The closure is a simple C-clasp. The design is by Frank Hess, and the materials and construction are Haskell all the way. This beautiful jewel is from my personal collection.
