I bought for my mother as she was going gambling and she absolutely loved it. I would have done a picture but I gave it to her the day she left!
Reminds me of the riverboats on the Mississippi. I love it!
I've been looking for a riverboat pin for a long time and wish I had thought of Heid Daus first. No one gives jewelry the WOW factor like she does! I was born in New Orleans and this brooch happens to represent the famous steam boat of the Crescent City on the Mississippi River! It is a large brooch, heavily encrusted with colorful stones and designed with amazing details. It will recall many happy memories for anyone who has ever stood on the decks of this historic steam boat or admired her from the levees. I will treasure this Heidi Daus brooch and its remarkable power to transport me to the wharves of New Orleans, the sound of the boat whistle and carriage wheels on cobblestones, the sight of the spires of St Louis Cathedral and the scent of hot beignets and French coffee. Oh, how jewelry can make us dream!

I’m from New Orleans, so this piece has lots of wonderful times on the Mississippi River. It’s so adorable and made so well. Can’t go wrong with this, Heidi Sparkle. Love it.
I do love this pin. It's good sized but not too big, sparkly and it has some white enameling, which I like. It is fairly weighty too so a silk blouse isn't likely a best choice but most any jacket would work perfectly.
This pin reminds me of the steamship cruises I've been on. It's really cute.
