Interesting silver and enamel earrings by New York jewelry artist, Helen Hosking. Hosking's work has been in museum shows throughout the United States. These triangular earrings are particularly interesting because the enamel looks like inlaid stone. Measurements are 1 1/8" wide and 1 1/16" tall. They are large but light enough to be worn comfortably. Clip backs can be converted to posts; excellent condition.
This colorful necklace from Czechoslovakia is made of beads; and wood discs and square wood rods. It is strung on a metal chain measuring 18" long. It probably dates to the 1930's or 40's. Condition is excellent. The mix of colors allows this necklace to be worn well with almost anything.
Rare necklace of sterling and malachite by silver master, William Spratling. This example is especially unusual because of the two colors of stones, giving the effect of fabric turned over and under. It is in excellent condition with the tiny exception of a ding to one of the balls. The chain measures 20" long. Hallmark dates to the 1940's.
Overlapping rectangles of enamel and textured gold make for sporty looking tri-color earrings by Cartier. The smooth finish of the navy and white enamel rectangles works well with the textured gold.

This positively enormous belt buckle by silver master, Antonio Pineda, transcends jewelry into sculpture. It is 970 silver set with an abstract design in onyx. It was probably a custom made piece.

Two custom made brooches done in sterling and gold. The pin on the left has 16 gold balls on a matter silver surface. It measures 1 5/8" square. Because it is square, it would look equally good worn on point.
The brooch on the right has intentionally irregular edges. The matte gold center square and matte silver around it both have smooth silver frames making for a nice variety of textures. Measures 1 3/4" x 1 5/8".
This unusual Modernist silver cuff bracelet opens on the side. It is graduated in size and can be worn in a variety of ways. It is equally interesting with the opening to the inside or outside; with the wide part either top or bottom.
The width is 9/16" at its widest and goes to 1 1/2" at the widest. Excellent condition.
