Another find from sunny Rio de Janeiro, this bangle bracelet is a sure stunner. Lucite is a form of acrylic resin and in this case it is given a molten look. To me, it looks as if the bangle has been melted around the wrist. Very unusual and creative design interpretation.
The idea of melting colors/materials is also present on the color. The coppery Sunstone look seems to melt in to the bright almost bubble gum pink.
Bangle is 1 1/2" at the widest point. Inside diameter is 2 5/8" .
Unsigned and unmarked, circa 1970s, made in Brazil.
Vintage studio made Modernist statement necklace with long articulated pendant reminiscent of Calder designs. Made of Bronze or Brass sheet, hand hammered for texture. The top portion is enhanced by a single round Malachite cabochon. The necklace is light and comfortable to wear in spite of its larger dimensions.
The pendant measures 6 1/2" long at the center and is 2 1/4" at the widest point. Because it is articulated , it moves when you move and it is not overpowering. A great necklace to showcase when wearing a simple top in the Summer or a sweater in the winter.
Pendant comes with the original hand made neck ring, which is 15 1/2" long. If you prefer a chain or cord, it is easy to move the pendant.
It is very well made and likely to be one of a kind. Date is estimated to be the 1960's. There are no maker's mark.View full product details
