Topaz Treasure gleams and sparkles under the lights with the hundreds of Topaz Swarovski crystals and the 24k plated stand and filigrees.
Inside is a cute Swarovski crystal Lizard Brooch.
An Emu Eggshell was used for this original design by Glenis Thomas. It was made especially for an Exhibition at the Pataka Museum & Gallery, Porirua City, New Zealand. The photos show the details and the delicate cutting on the top half. It took two days to line the bottom half with 12 meters of narrow, metallic gold ribbon cut and made into a prairie points. Most of the work was done under a magnifier. Glenis found this made a big difference with doing such fine work.

    Hi Canida, Many thanks! I used a high speed Dremel tool with a flexi shaft and diamond cutters. It's the finest cut I've done so far. It required great concentration but I was thrilled I did it without any breaks!
