Silver Screen Sirens - Blonde Bombshell brooch. 

I called this image of Marilyn Monroe 'Blonde Bombshell' as when beginning to develop her star image, 20th Century-Fox wanted Monroe to replace the aging Betty Grable, their most popular "blonde bombshell" of the 1940s.  While the 1940s had been the heyday of actresses perceived as tough and smart, such as Katharine Hepburn and Barbara Stanwyck, who appealed to women-dominated audiences, the studio wanted Monroe to be a star of the new decade that would draw men to movie theaters.

This image is affixed to a silver tone brooch setting measuring 40mmx50mm across the widest points with glass covering the image. 

Inside diameter = 30mmx40mm
Outside diameter = 40mmx50mm

My products are meticulously handmade one piece at a time. Due to this process, there may be a slight variation from one item to the next. Such variations are inherent in the manufacturing of handmade products, so you may expect minor distinctions/imperfections that will make your purchase special and truly one of a kind.
