This naive little brooch was given as a token of friendship, I imagine. The whitest, finest blond hair has been arranged in a flower pattern, with miniscule gold-colored medallions anchoring the center and root. Leaves have been inked in, and the whole mini artwork is protected by beveled glass. This could have been a DIY project - the materials and craftsmanship is beyond adorable.
This product is final sale.
gold fill, glass, hair, ink, gold-colored medallions
