    Hahaha...I was thinking that pearl looked kinda like a thumb. BUT, that is a beautiful piece of jewelry, just not really my taste.

    I like the idea. Unfortunately, I don't think conch pearls make for the best "body". The smaller ones look nice, though.

    I think it's a beautiful brooch but agree that the body reminds me of a hot dog too. I think a lustrous white tube shaped pearl instead would solve the problem

    Either way, pretty!

    I was thinking that same something else, but I typed hot dog.

    My second thought was finger.

    Basically, the center body needs some eyes, antenna, maybe some gold wire criss crossing the back.
    Something, anything to keep it from looking like a detached body part.
