This is an awesome find! This is a Les Bernard pin. Les Bernard made jewelry starting in the 1960's through the 1990's. Since he had a later start in the costume/finer jewelry market, many books do not mention his designs but they are some of the most innovative on the market. He created many unique techniques one of the most famous being the diamond point texture style. this created many small indentations in the material that gave it depth and allowed for the mixture of rhinestones and marcasites in the same pieces that was not usually done at the time due to the level of difficulty. This piece features many small details on the wings that i have not seen in a piece of this size. I am not sure of all the materials but this item would have been sold in more of the fine jewelry category in the late 1970's-1980's. The style makes it seem like an older piece and the quality is apparent when you hold the piece. Les Bernard was also known for using unique combinations of stones (as seen in this piece) and also using real rubies and other precious stones for accents such as eyes. There are NOT real rubies on this piece I am just giving some history in case you one day want to collect more of this exciting designers jewelry. This piece would be a great piece to get yourself moving towards finer jewelry that has a whimsical costume feel to it. I have found that collecting costume jewelry is fun and the variety can't be beat but I am always happy to find pieces such as this that are beyond that level but still have a unique style.
