    Having had two weeks frantically busy with an equestrian group that I volunteer for I’m now back in the game!
    Found some nice bits and pieces.
    Any thoughts please? Or does anything deserve more photos?
    Glorious pink glass (50p!)
    Beautiful blue glass beads.

    Interesting possibly a belt trying to be NA? Not silver, cheap metal but pretty.

    Could this be Georgian?

    Nice Czech beads.

    I know they are broken but I thought these were unusual for cameo earrings.
    Pretty ring. Mary Contrary says stone but isn’t going to commit herself to which one.

    Cute Pheasant?, think it’s quite old?

    Georgian? brooch just tested as silver although unsure what fineness.

    That Czech necklace on the left is iris glass, and the nice old sort with bright colors. Mary is right about the ring - two colors of quartz looks like.

    It is a nice one as the chain is pretty too.

    NA belt might be Avon, they had a range. That's black dot Georgian paste, I reckon. Pheasant is 20s or 30s, that round brooch is Victorian mourning and I've got those blue beads!

    Can you expand on black dot Georgian paste? How to ID it? I’ve got a thing for Georgian buckles so would love to know more.

    The cameos are quite interesting. Damage & grime make it hard to see if they are exact mirror images of one another. If they are, have to think some kind of early plastic. If actually carved by hand, could be tortoise.

    It's paste, and under a glass you see a wee black dot at the base of the stone. Idea was to make it look more like an old cut diamond. Your eye is drawn in by the dot, and the stone looks deeper.

    I Desaturated the back of that pretty pheasant, and looks more silver for me.....looks like there's some small writing you can look over with a Loupe now to see if any of it actually says anything....up near the underside of the beak too.....!!

    Thanks Bronwen (can’t tag for some reason :confused:) think they are an early plastic as under a loupe they have some of those very fine spider lines that they get. I thought the subject matter was more unusual than most of the pretty ladies. They aren’t shell, that I do know!
    Any idea of the age?

    Native American-inpired concho hip belt likely late 1960s/early1970s when they were all the rage.

    They aren’t. I’ve just given them a good scrub and I’ll post a photo tomorrow.

    Agree. With a second look when I'm not falling asleep, can see they are not meant to be a matched pair. Still the possibility of being molded. I await @KSW 's after the spa photos.
