Enhancing a 1940’s Sterling Silver Brooch – The original Brooch had a Green Cut Glass Stone with a Golden Mirror backing. The patterns were covered in black paint of a sort and the Brooch took a bit of bashing. I first removed the back paint and restored it to shape, to discover a delightful and intricate Brooch. The Green Cut Glass didn’t do it justice, so I cut a piece of Maryborough Chrysoprase as a Cabochon. The Apple Green colour of the “Australian Jade” adds Charm and Elegance to this Sterling Silver brooch. A Christmas present for my Mother in Law … Why on Earth should I be so nice to her?
