Restoration 9: Pot Metal Bird of Paradise

Pot metal bird brooch in the process of restoning
Another piece from my customer in PA. This time a bird of paradise in all its pot metal glory, a huge brooch measuring over 5 inches long. 

After a bath in the acetone to remove old glue and stones I was ready to rehab. This required some metal polishing to bring out the luster as there were some very dark spots. 

Again, pink and green were thecolors of choice, it was simply a matter of figuring out where everything would go.

Again, they were very pleased, as was I!

You can watch a video below of the process, it does take a minute to load.
