Show and Tell Sunday/ Bling

I'm not a big collector of "bling". These 2 pins were in my Mother's things. She was not a jewelry person. The bottom pin had her initial in the middle and a hook on the back which looks like it should hold a charm.
I wasn't going to post "bling" today but when a favorite customer's son called to say he was taking her to the hospital again, I had her on my mind. She is 95 and still lives alone. She has been battling cancer for a couple years and has spent her first nights in a hospital. She was actually in to get her hair done last week. Having said all that, I remembered she gave me a box of jewelry when she found out that I love pins. This is what was in the box.
These little baskets are a gold filigree.
All the little daises have a rhinestone center. This pearl also has a rhinestone center.
Love the crystals. I think I'll have repurpose them sometime.
These pink butterflies are serious bling!
Thanks, Cora!
If you'd like to be blinded by more "bling" go to the Little Pink Studio for a list and details on how to take part in Show and Tell Sunday.

Hi Jean,
Loved seeing all your pretties (my granddaughter calls them bling blings! I have so much of that type of jewelry from Mom & Grandpa. I almost never wear it..
I didn't know there was more than one Show N Tell. (I'm guessing this isn't Kelli's but I didn't go to the link yet..)
Have a wonderful Sunday!
