Wendy Gell Marching Sailors Brooch

Compliments of Lilly Vittetow

Lilly's Vintage Jewelry

Wendy Says:
"The sailors were done for my shows on QVC, so they are done in multiples. They were inspired by an old pin I found in a flea market and by my boyfriend who went to Viet Nam when I was a girl in the 60’s."

A Wendy Gell Wristy. The center figure is the Eisie Gargoyle design by Ruth Kamke.  The mirror image pieces on either side of the Gargoyle are also Eisenbergs.
The stone that the figure has its elbows on would have been like the one in the next picture.

This is the cuff in question. Is this a Wendy Gell creation?

Courtesy of Sande Kattau

Wendy says:
"Is that mine or not. It could be yes or it could be a knockoff.

The pearls look like they have holes at the ends which we rarely did, I can see hot glue which I use and the finishing done with epoxy when this was made it is our pearl pave and rhinestone chain.  Very close copy but my gut feeling is it’s not mine. Also the big circle stones look like Austrian not swarovski.

I could only tell if I saw it in person. We did a few cross over tops but very few."
