If you walk on the Wild Side, you'll be crazy about this huge 5 1/4-inch vintage brooch and the matching earrings. Created by a New Mexico craftswoman around 1980, this set has been in my personal collection since then. I've decided to sell it on, since I have another brooch that's similar (even bigger). Mine will be worn a *lot* this season, now that feathers are all over top designers' runway shows.

The central portion of the brooch and the earring tops are made of some sort of glitz-imbued plastic that's black with shiny gold flecks. Feathers and beads hang from the earrings - and the feather-crowned brooch, in which quite a few stunning beads are embedded, has others rising on wires at adjustable angles. All the jewels finish with dramatic saber-toothed dangles of dyed bone and are in original condition. (There's a teensy chip at the top back of one dangle that's been there all along and doesn't show when worn.) Steel earring posts and a brooch clasp mechanism are embedded in the backs.

You'll get loads of attention whenever you wear this spectacular set, and the mix of colors makes it go with practically everything: black, brown, tan, dark blue, blue-green and any shade of coral or rusty red.
