    Pee'd down with rain last weekend, so I got a few bits but no Jools.

    Today was better. ;)

    Lovely, obb. Cute Chinese(?) violin brooch.
    The silver mask pendant with the gold bit is Balinese.
    Is the purplish pendant Blue John or amethyst quartz?
    Nice brass cuff.:)

    Ah, I did wonder where the pendant was from, Bali makes huge sense, thank you! It looks like a mask, now I peer at it again.

    Both brooch and pendant are Blue John. Am I pleased, or what. ;)

    Tortie bangle was 50 pence, the copper and brass one a quid, the Bali was five and the WHOLE OF THE REST was a grand ten pounds...

    So it is! It looked a bit brown at first, like smoky quartz, but now I see the colour.
    :happy:

    Not one but two pieces of blue john? Score!

    I can't quite capture the brooch colour, I need to light it better, but it's absolutely Blue John, made by Ward Bros. A score indeed. ;)

    aj, that brooch is a dead ringer, isn't it. Ta!

    The bracelet with iris glass rhinestones is lovely!

    That narrow bangle is very special. Is it Bakelite?

    I do like iris stones. It's a bit small, I may need to add a ring. Not sure if the bangle is bakelite or another early plastic. I do like it.
