Created by one of the legends of crystal jewelry design, Dorothy Bauer, this massive colorful macaw brooch is nothing but epic. As boisterous as macaws themselves, this figural jewel absolutely screeches with color and personality.
While a small version of Bauer's parrot can be found occasionally, this mega bird is a rare find. Part jewelry, part art, she is worthy of a spot on your wall when not on your body.
Vintage metal and hand-set Swarovski crystals. Marked Bauer (1982-2008). Made in the US. Almost 8" from head to tail, pin measures nearly 3" to support this mega beauty. Go big or go home!!
Macaws are among the most fabulous birds in nature. Big, colorful, and loud, they tend to gather in groups of 10-30 individuals. They live throughout South and Central America, primarily in forests although some species have adapted to savanna or wooded farmlands. There are about 17 wild species, some endangered. Because they're smart and playful they're often poached from the wild for illegal pet trade. Better to adopt a jewelry pet!
