That''s a really cool pin. It looks like it curves slightly, does it?

thanks coati and addy!

i''m quite pleased about it. it''s just a simple little thing, which didn''t cost me much, but i wear a lot of black cashmere (hey, i live in New York!) so pins often just add a shot of ''something'' to jazz up a blank canvas. i also use them in the woolen scarves and pashminas i wear in the winter. Upgradable posted a few in one thread, and i got inspired. they represent only the 5th and 6th things, respectively, that i''ve bought on ebay over the last 11 years, so i''m quite chuffed. :)

and addy, no - i dont think it''s curved - if so, not intentionally! i''ve seen sideways shots, and it looks pretty straight.

just a nice little something to put in the jewelry box. :)

Love, Love, LOVE the little blingy thing!!!! I love how the bits of sparkle brighten up sweaters and scarves.

Shhhh..... it''s a secret, but pins are my favorite type of jewelry! We just don''t wear them like women used to. The right (or wrong) pin can make (or break) an outfit! A woman wearing a pin automatically ratchets herself up in my estimation!

after this one brief foray into ebay, i''m swearing myself off! i can see the potential for GREAT downfall on this!

Whitby, I hope it makes you feel better to see that I have been sucked in too! I have to get these to my jeweler and have him modify these into pendants. Shhhhh...... don''t let Glitterata know! She''ll be in tears because I''m going to butcher these!
