“Beauty of Toledo” / Theme: Details
A little about this photo…
This is a damascene brooch from Spain. It’s not actually from Toledo (I’ve never been to Toledo), but the style of this jewelry is called “Toledo ware” (Toledo, Spain was/is a major producer). I did get it in Spain, although I can’t really remember where anymore.
I don’t really wear jewelry much anymore, and certainly don’t have much chance to put on a brooch as ornate as this one. Still, I really like the detail of the bird and the flowers and all the fuss that makes this what it is.
