Timeless Beauties

Beauty in the form of Hand Painted Brooches...

There's just something about the look of the hand painted brooch. I don't know what it is...perhaps the romance of the idea of its making and wearing. Can you picture one of these worn on the dress of a young woman, perhaps on a Sunday for Church? The eyes would immediately be drawn to the beauty of the piece. Perhaps the wearer was also the artist.
Oh, if I could only paint like that! I'd love to learn that art...painting beautiful china and jewelry.
Almost a lost art.

These are a few mosaics I've made of past posts. If you'd like to see the larger versions, please see my older posts for July.
I'm joining up with a few parties for Monday. Be sure and check them out to see all the beautiful blogs out there!!!

Wish I could stick my hand through the screen and pick through all that wonderful jewelry, especially the brooches so I could examine the painting on them.
Thanks for showing them again.
