Paste and Pearl
A small, heavy, aged metal casket with a torn and shredded blue lining is the perfect container for the paste and mother of pearl treasure I found recently.
Spilling out of this little casket a confection of bright sparkle and creamy iridescence.
Two mother of pearl rosaries, one with a golden cross the other with mother of pearl.
Old paste pieces and an arrow pin pointing at a beautiful art deco brooch.
A beautiful mother of pearl brooch in the shape of a leaf with an acorn, and more old paste embellishments
Intricately carved mother of pearl buttons, too beautiful to use as fastenings, an art deco brooch and an old paste dress clip.
They go so beautifully together, Paste and Pearl.
