YeaH Its Antonio

000h how cool is this piece?! Yeah, it has issues but it was a good price so I went ahead and got it.

I had a consult with my jeweler yesterday and he said because of the way its constructed the silver near the 'joints' is weakend. He showed me a couple that were already beginning to show some teeny cracks :(
So he is repairing those and is gonna see if his lapidary guy and recontruct the one missing dangle thingy.

Its Red But What Else??

This bracelet just closed on ebay for $488...Ok so its red, its signed Del Rio - an OK designer - not one of the top or well known. The desciption notes that its in the Billie Hougart book - big woop...So tell me, email me, comment me, explain to me, why, why, why, this went for soooo much $$$. Pls enlighten me...and I understand that yest its red, it may even have been bakelite (not onyx) but really that much?! OK I know - it was a shill bidder, right? Tia
