    Hi all. Picked this hatpin(?) up because like a magpie,the sparkle appealed . Its 5 1/2 inches long,no marks. Is it a hobbyist piece ? Any input is always appreciated.

    Fair enough,but I didnt think hat pins would still be used ?

    If the 5 1/2 inches is the whole length I suspect it's a lapel type pin and not long enough for a hat pin.

    Do those stones look like glass or diamonds?

    Not a hat pin, it was never intended to be used... Only beads put together on a shaft, intended for deco only when you make a bunch and display them.

    How to make more for your bunch:):

    The collectors site is informative about "real" forgeries, (yours is not;)):

    Those are glass. You can buy those roundels ready made in beading stores. It is a hobbyist piece.

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    It's pretty, and looks like fun for decoration. I like the idea of a flashy lapel pin!
