This Victorian hair piece is one of a group of similar pieces I bought.
In rough condition, it was actually a brooch.
The pin was broke leaving just enough metal to fashion a ring or bail.
I paired it with a piece of old watch fob, part of an old rosary,
some antique faceted black beads,
a religious medal,
and some other bits and pieces.
Unfortunately as I was working on it,
the hair moved a bit in the case.
Can you tell?
It's off to the jewelers with it. I think she can take the glass off ,
which needs to be cleaned anyway,
and reposition the hair.
At least I hope so, cuz I really like this piece!
