Vintage pair of studio made Biomorphic Modernist earrings in Sterling Silver.
Earrings are entirely hand fabricated.
Abstract shape, part geometric, part marine life.
Several techniques were used, including heating the Silver to create texture.
Applied reticulated orbs.
Each features a bezel set 4mm Garnet and a natural Black Tourmaline point crystal.
Overall measurements are approximately 1 5/8" long by 15/16" at the widest point.
Due to their hand made nature there are slight differences between the side, they are not cast.
Great detail, sides are mirror images.
Earrings are posts and can be worn as "climbers".
In very good condition but one post has been replaced.
Marked simply 925.
Estimated to date from the 1980's Art to Wear Movement.
