BWB Amazingly Beautiful Exotic Bird of Paradise Vintage Cabochon Satin Green Glass (1) with Asian influence 30mm Pierced
Lovely vintage cabochon depicting a swooping bird of paradise motif, this feathered friend is quite camouflaged by all the swirling vegetation surrounding it. It has a hint of Asian influence due to the stylized curly clouds on the edges. To me, it looks quite Persian. I've tinted the stone with glittery gold to bring out the details and, hey, you can do the same thing too and with a different color if you like.
It is made with variegated satin glass, so in some areas it is light and opaque and in others it is dark and transparent.
It has several piercings, so it's perfect for wiring or threading, or even setting a stone. The reverse is flat backed. There may be minor flea bites from age.
This is a 2 way design, it can be used both horizontally, or vertically with it's beak positioned upwards.

Shipping & policies
Shipping charges are for postage and the padded envelope.
I ship in a small box if the item is fragile, which sometimes adds a bit to the postage, but you'll get your order in perfect shape.
I do recycle and have my own unique way of packing items so that they don't break. It may not look pretty sometimes, but you'll get your order intact even if an elephant steps on it!
Domestic orders are usually sent out within 3 business days, unless otherwise noted.
***A Longish Note about International Orders***
International orders are sent out a maximum of once a week, because that involves a trip to the horrible nasty post office.
I love international orders. ..... However, please know..
1)The lowest mailing rate is first class international. It can take up to 10 business days for delivery, depending on the destination.
2)The higher rates are faster and have more services available, for a higher price, MUCH MUCH higher.
Most international buyers opt for first class which, this year is much more efficient since package tracking is automatically included.
**These are the facts**:
There is no control over a mailing after it leaves my hands or goes out of the country.
Any loss or damage must be followed up in the recipient's post office.
Hello? Are you still awake after getting thru this?? Sorry to be so wordy, but this is soo necessary.
Please, dear reader, do not send me cash in the mail.
It can lead to a lot of problems which we both don't want.*
*I will occasionally break my own rules, re: the above if I am begged or bribed with candy, or chocolate... however, that's often accompanied by gut-wrenching anxiety about loss, miscounts, mistakes etc., which leads to overeating on chocolate and potato chips.... §;*) ... weight gain ... nightmares...
Checks, money orders, and PayPal are fine. §;*)
