    Hey Everyone! I couldn't believe it! I was wasting time browsing at Ruby Lane and I saw a little key cabinet that a crafter had made. She did a mosaic with a bunch of jewelry pieces on it. Right there glued and grouted into the cabinet was a Starry Night solid! I was sick! If it was not already sold I would have bought it and dug it out of there! The whole cabinet sold for $72. I wonder if someone wanted the cabinet (it was very cute) or if someone spied the solid. I guess you can find solids anywhere if you look hard enough! If anyone would like to see it go to ruby Lane search mosaic, go to page 25, about 5 items done look for Sold Mosaic Jeweled key box. I will try a hyperlink.I don't know how long it will be there so if anyone wants to see it go soon! I bought a collage pin once at a flea market that has a Vanda Cukoo clock glued on it. Have any of you ever made art out of your solids. Donna
    Starry Night in art!
    I got my daughter to do the link HEEHEE! ENJOY!

    I just can't believe that anyone would use a beautiful solid like that in a mosaic!
    Especially with all the costume jewelry. <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//huh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’huh.gif’ />
    The starry nights makes it kinda “purdy” <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ />
    Very interesting find.

    That is a very cute box but I think that the Starry Nights is actually a pin not the solid. If you look at it you will see more rows of crystals that make up the band around the planet- Starry nights only has one row of crystals.

    I have found this pin before and was fooled by it. I have also seen many, many pins that are the exact same as some of the cameo solids.

    Lisa– I think you are right about that being a pin. That Pin also comes in green.

    WOW you guys are correct! <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ /> Actually that makes me feel better. I just couldn't stand the thought of that solid being glued to a box. <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ /> HAHA It does have many more rows of crystals than the solid, but it is so similar. Who makes that pin? It is so close to the Lauder design. Now I am glad it was sold. I would have purchased it and only had a costume jewelry pin. <img src='style_emoticons//blink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’blink.gif’ />

    Thanks for the insight. Have a great day everyone!

    Did EL make the pins and cameos for another company to sell or did EL make them and sell them? First I heard about the pins. Do any of you collectors have the pins to match the solids? And how many pins were made to match the solids?
    Lots of ??????????? <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    I have a keychain from Planet Hollywood that is the same design as EL's Starry Night.

    Lisa, you missed your vocation. You should have been a detective, you don't miss a trick. Can you imagine if you were on quality control too! You have quite an eye for detail.

    Did you see this pin at the Hillsboro Antique Mall? I looked and looked at it and almost bought it thinking it might be the closest I ever came to the EL Starry Night. It was obviously old and the price was marked Firm. Finally decided the designer at Estee must have adapted this design for the Starry.

    Hi Nancy,
    Are you home now? If so give me your e-address and I'll send you some photos.
