The dichroic glass bar was made in Japan in the Nifty Fifties, and is a lovely violet colour with TONS of silver foiling shining through.
I've added a frame of silver plate glass seed beads, and a whimsical fringe of silver plate and fuchsia-lined aqua seed beads.
The pin is about 1-7/8" wide and 3" from its top to the bottom of the longest fringe element.
Fun and off-kilter -- a bit like its maker -- it's an excellent price, as well.
Naturally, it's from SPARKLE PLENTY.
