    It's me again Margaret...Enamel bird necklace (HEAVY)

    Ideally, I need to find a good, scratch that, excellent resource (book, website...) on vintage jewelry.

    Either way, this forum has been an tremendous resource to me. For that, I want to thank ALL of you.

    So, I have another hard to identify piece. I probably won't part with this piece. I love it too much. I paid $12 for this one bc it "spoke to me".

    Enamel bird pendant with super heavy hand strung and knotted beads. They are probably dyed, but they sure are a wonderful shade of purple!!! (though the camera sure doesn't do the color any justice)

    Any info on this piece (and/or a good resource) would be greatly appreciated.

    Thx

    Mandi

    Not too vintage, but nice looking. Cloisonne bird. Here is a similar (not as good looking) one that sold for $45.00- Chinese Cloisonne Bead Figural Bird Stone Bead Necklace Knotted Strand | eBay

    We sell a lot of vintage jewelry and learned a lot by simply watching YouTube videos. Just type in vintage or antique jewelry and start watching. There is a wealth of information out there. Also a great way to learn is study completed vintage jewelry sales on Ebay. It doesn't take long to start seeing your profits increase. One tip - also study modern jewelry made to look old/vintage so you do not get burned. Good luck!!

    That one is VERY close. Now I have to find a way to fix it. My youngest (1.5 years old) pulled on it at a party on Saturday and the strand broke right at the bottom of the bird's foot. Luckily I'm crafty so I should be able to remove a brad or two...and good as new.

    Decent piece, satisfying to the eye and desirable but lots of fake cloisonne out there! not certain how to tell if it's genuine.
