What are the wing gods thoughts on these bad boys?  I am leaning towards a sweetheart piece, but they may not be!  Never seen any before resembling these...

Definitely a sweetheart pin or ladies brooch; however, because of the fittings used on the back I don't believe it was made in the CBI. 

 

While I would not rule out the possibility that it may have been made in Mexico, I lean more to the probability that it was made by a Native American in the Southwest USA for resell to the tourist trade.

good point about the fittings.. I didn't even think about those not being available in the CBI.
