Flutterby Butterfly This item to the right has a butterfly on it. It's seems it's made of lead and has a cone like opening on the bottom, like it sat on the top of something. The backside has Chinese or Japanese writing on it. My wife's guess is that it had a pointed wooden stick it sat on, that a woman would put in her hair for decoration. It's about an inch and a half long and an inch wide. Any other ideas?

Did you know that a butterfly was originally called a flutterby?

Unusual Pendant?

This other piece is interesting. It looks like a sword or ax. The long clear part is probably glass or quartz. It may be a pendant, and the hook could have been attached to the end, where it broke off. So, then I would be actually holding it upside down. It's not made of silver. But there are two red stones on it.

Carol was out hunting in chest deep water, when she found this. It's hard to dig when you get out that far. She compares it to ballet and everything is in slow motion.
