Rated 5 out of 5 by willow 13 worth the price
It came earlier than I was told it would be.Very beautiful box. I bought it as a gift and the box was so pretty that I didn't even have to wrap it. The colors on the head dress is really pretty. The person who got it as a gift knew right away who it was because they are studying it in one of her college classes!I had no idea that that was going on. So she was really blown away by the beauty of the piece and the symbolic meaning. I'm so happy I found this to give to her.Her father passed away not to long ago ,so her birthdays have not seen much joy.This was the first time since his passing that she was happy on her birthday.

This exceeded my expectations. The presentation was great but it looks even better in person. It's hard to photograph the rainbow colors from the mother of pearl that glows through the carved crystal face. The abalone I received was perfect - pinks, greens, blues. I love the scale of this artistic face. Not too big or small. It looks great on my sparrow necklace. The expression is so serene and I just love the meaning behind this art. A reminder to be compassionate and peaceful - we all need that.
Rated 3 out of 5 by inukshuk2 Disappointment
In the picture and on the TV this looked quite stunning so I was really disappointed in the actual object, especially considering the price. The loops on the ends were also bent more on one side than the other.

My first Barbara Bixby piece and it's just lovely. Most certainly worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shoedilettante My first - certainly not my last - Bixby
I've always watching Barbara Bixby's presentations, but I've never purchased before this because they seem so expensive. Well, this was expensive; however, it was worth every penny! My goodness, what an exquisite and beautifully crafted piece. This represents the craftsmanship of this artist, I'll be my pennies and coming back for more! The saturation of colors, the expressiveness of the face, the details on this are truly remarkable.

Wow! Amazingly beautiful and spiritual piece of jewelry. Her face is so calm looking and the workmanship is A +
Knowing she stands for compassion and empathy is why I purchased this piece, I wasn't sure I would keep this piece because I usually collect crosses, but this is truly a keeper. I love Rhodolite garnet and the marquise cut is awesome and perfect. The abalone is flawless. I will wear this often. Love it! Thank you Barbara!
Rated 2 out of 5 by CBXJACK Received damaged
I got this today. 3 things were wrong right off the bat.
One ear was longer than the other (crooked) and noticeable.
Mother of pearl on top of hat (one of the three was damaged) looks cracked. Notice this right away.
Clasp in back won't stay closed.
I have several items from BB and have paid a lot and enjoyed them and cherish them this was a disappointment usual her stuff is well made and rarely if ever not on the mark design and quality wise. Sorry going back - 279.00 is a lot of money for something damaged.
