Vintage 1980's designer earrings, Israeli designer sterling silver modernist earrings. Like the other pair, these are large and dramatic earrings, yet light with great mod design. Electroforming technique revolutionized the art of silver making by creating wonderful shapes when the silver is pliable and creating wearable art. Signed GLW and 925. I have done a lot of research and can't find this designers name though I have found several smaller pieces. In the 1970's Bat Ami went on to pioneer the Electroforming technique, Turning sterling silver jewelry into complex unique shapes, turning this previously science-only application into a renowned sophisticated contemporary art form known worldwide as "Israeli Silver". I have another pair I will be listing as well as seen in the last photo.
CONDITION: Excellent vintage with no damage or repairs. Signs of use. Please enlarge photos as they are part of the description. Just remember that everything is magnified well beyond what the human eye will see.
SIZE: Large, measuring 2 1/4 inches long x 1 1/4 inches wide
Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
Downsizing was inevitable and I've done it several times already. This is the big one, and I am still unboxing treasures retrieved from storage after decades.
All pieces are one of a kind handpicked by yours truly over 40 years to add texture, style and story to your authentic style.
My collecting story starts after watching Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor as a young girl, I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new.
Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
