I invite you to join us for exhibition of our upcoming sale, which opens to the public Thursday, November 3, and view these works and more in person.
I adore jewelry as nature. The cascading flower, suspending moveable buds, and whimsical butterfly, all enamel in shades of pink and green, is captivating. This brooch is nothing short of a showstopper.
