One of these things is not like the others ~ I took some tiny star fish gathered from my travels to Tarpon Springs, FL tourist trap called the sponge docks. They sell all sorts of shells, sharks teeth, and sponges there. I pained the dainty etoiles with white paint, then applied white german glass glitter, and finally glued a ribbon tie. These little babies can be hung from various creative places. Quite a handful I must say.
I love this vintage brooch.
