Winifred Mason Chenet DHaiti Bracelet Earrings Copper
Sold. Thanks.

A striking Bracelet and Earrings set by Winifred Mason Chenet, who is known to have signed her work chenet d'haiti. According to published reports Mason Chenet was an African American woman, hand crafting jewelry in Greenwich Village. She reportedly worked with and trained Art Smith, a well respected African American modernist jeweler. She believed that each piece should be unique and distinctive. This set, consisting of a matching bracelet and earrings, is made of copper oval disks with an overlay of brass. Bracelet is 7 1/2" long and 7/8" wide. Disks are curved to follow the shape of the wrist. Fold over closure. Screw back earrings hold tightly, have the same disk design and measure 3/4" across and 1" high. Bracelet and one of the earrings are marked with the stylized chenet d'haiti mark. Set is in very nice condition. Has some tarnish in places. Looks wonderful on.
