Clusters of black and clear glass bi-colored beads form these 1950s earrings by Alice Caviness. Some of the beads have caps of silver-tone filigree, while other caps are solid metal. These clip-backs were designed in the starburst or atomic motif that was popular in the ’50s, yet so versatile and wearable now! What’s curious is the way the earrings are signed: the maker’s name is stamped on one earring clip and applied to an oval cartouche on the mounting of the other earring.
