From the treasure chest ...

As a recent gift and addition to my personal treasure chest, I wanted to share with all of you a beautiful piece I received for my birthday this year. It is an Amphitrite cameo brooch. As you all know, in Greek mythology she was Queen of the Sea, the wife of Poseidon, and daughter to Doris and Nereus.

Triumph of Poseidon and Amphitrite showing the couple in procession, detail of a vast mosaic from CirtaRoman Africa (ca. 315–325 AD, now at the Louvre)

I really love this portrait ...
Neptune and Amphitrite by Jacob de Gheyn II (latter 16th-century)

Two cool (and very cheap and inexpensive) Dragon necklaces I found on the WISH site last week ...

I used a bronze chain for this pendant.

The Dragon necklace is a bit big, but with the right attire, I think it could compliment pretty nicely!


  1. Oh I love that brooch. I have to visit that Wish site. Everyone keeps finding such nice things on there.

    1. Definitely, Mary! And you will really love the prices, too!

  2. Love everything Kim! The brooch is gorgeous and both your pendant and necklace are very cool! You could open up your own store! LOL! You have such beautiful treasures!! Big Hugs!
