On the wings of . . .
Givre is the word in the world of costume jewelry used to describe rhinestones that have been infused with a second color.
Most givre glass was made in Germany, although the word is french . . . for "frost" . . . go figure out that meandering etymology . . .
The colors of this former dragonfly brooch are awesome givres of opalescent and "creamsicle", vibrant orange fire opal, fuschia, and opaque pink.
Such a unique treasure!

She searches for tiny treasures with such care, and with such an eye for the detail and history of what she's seeking -- and we relate to that as Anthillians.
Recently Vivian brought in some of the antique medallions, tie tacs and lapel pins she's gotten from Anthill over the last few months, and I assimilated them into a special treasure necklace with matching asymmetrical earrings.
I couldn't have been more delighted with how they turned out and she looks so awesome wearing them.
Vivian, I know the meaning the pieces hold for you -- we feel the same about these often overlooked little records of history, which somehow respect the former lives and accomplishments of their owners.
It is beyond gratifying to be able to offer them a voice, a home, a presence, a custodian -- and in this case, all of the above.
You're beautiful, Vivian . . .
and us Anthillians love ya!
