I grew up around cat tails near all the family ponds in northern IN where I grew up, and have always loved them. So this pin has held my interest and attention ever since I first saw it, maybe over a year ago, I believe? It is meticulously crafted, nicely enameled, and sparkly! Lovely to wear with my many other Heidi pins and crystal golden shadow/topaz pieces. A beautiful piece of art I'm SO happy I purchased during February Madness 2023!
