Two modernist sterling silver hand wrought brooches by Lore Garrick, (1920-2013) in organic free flowing styles. Lore Garrick made hand crafted jewelry in NYC in the 1950s. Known as 'Mother Lore' because her son became Tamal Krishna Goswami, she made the first pieces of jewelry for the Hare Krishna movement in Los Angeles.

The first brooch is constructed of two layers of sterling with different angles. Measures 3 1/4" long. Has a secure rollover clasp. Marked LORE Sterling. Has some tarnish and minor surface scratches.

The second brooch has a sterling base with a triangular green stone, (maybe jade?), attached with two curved wires. The sterling is flattened at one end and perpendicular at the other. Marked LORE Sterling. Rollover clasp is secure. There is some minor roughness on the edge of the stone. There is also some tarnish.

Brooches may be purchased as a pair or individually. Each Brooch Individually $130 or $225 for the pair.

Fine work from an interesting artisan.
