Silver Tone Road Runner Pin/brooch Vintage Rhinestones
The vintage Road Runner pin is 1 1/2 inches tall, by 1 3/4 inches long, and looks just like that long time cartoon character.

A safety pin clasp/closure is attached to the backside of the pin, and although unmarked as to manufacturer, this Road Runner pin is vintage and of fine quality.

The two oval Abalone earrings hang 1 inch from the silver fishhook end pieces, and measure 1/2 inch across the design. They are still attached to a white felt backing inside a cotton lined gift box. Marked 925 on each backside, the earrings are well designed and crafted, and appear to be both vintage and unused.
Charming acrylic flamingo earrings hang down 2 1/2 inches from the fishhook style end piece, and measure 3/4 inch across the widest part of the flamingo's body. One large pink bead, and 5 small pink, yellow, and blue beads, enhance the visual punch of the design. These are playful earrings, but in no way gaudy. They have no maker's marks, but are well crafted, with fine details, and have a terrific color palette for a new spring and summer season. The flamingoes will be sent in a gold colored gift box to their new owner.
Gold-tone Real Life Sand Dollar Necklace By Parker
This is a lovely vintage sand dollar pendant/necklace created by Parker during the 1960's/1970's time frame. The gold-tone sand dollar was once a living creature, a relative to the starfish. Suspended from the 15 inch gold color chain, is the 1 1/2 inch Holy Ghost Shell, as it is also called. It has a center star and five petals extending outward which represent the Easter Lily. There are four gold tone beads on the chain just above the sand dollar which complement the over-all design. The jewelry creator, Parker, included a tag with a description of the meaning of the real life sand dollar, and this will be sent along with the sand dollar pendent in a gold gift box. Although of vintage age, the necklace is in fine condition and has only minimum wear. The accompanying Parker descriptive card shows age browning, but no tears or writing.
This awesome LOT of 11 is a must have. There are beads, necklaces, brooch, pin with Abalone, bracelets, earrings, pewter pendant, shells, and an antique sweater pin. I believe the box is Bakelite. It's covered in cloth with a floral and gold design. The inside is beautiful dark green felt and medium brown satin.
