Group of 6 in a study of hand-signed, in script, mixed metal brooches and/or pendants by the late MARCI ZELAMNOFF and from her estate. They are presented separately and made between 1979-1980. Each is one of a kind and are presented in chronological order. Born in 1942 in Philadelphia, she attended the Rhode Island School of Design and studied with Brent Kingston and Olaf Skoogers. She was a painter, sculptor, and silversmith. These pieces are examples of a study she did in 1979-80 and are each made of silver, copper, and brass. In excellent condition except that there are wear lines in the copper.
