Marks

"ALICE CAVINESS" on an oval cartouche on brooch

This 1950s brooch and earrings set by Alice Caviness features amazing layers of citrine crystals, golden topaz beads, mother-of-pearl disks and textured brass leaves wired onto a decorative frame, which is mounted on another frame with the pin and roll-over safety clasp. The complexity of the design and construction seen here are often present in this maker’s work, which I believe is underrated. This set is definitely not for the faint-hearted! I will include the matching bracelet, which has only three of its four strands of beads, but it is definitely wearable. I have a similar pair of earrings by the same maker – scroll down to see them.

    Citrine, Golden Topaz & Mother of Pearl 1950s Earrings by Alice Caviness

    , ,

    These 1950s earrings by Alice Caviness feature layers of citrine and golden topaz glass beads along with aurora borealis rhinestones, mother-of-pearl disks and textured brass leaves.  The elements are wired onto a brass mesh back with ear clips.  This is the type of creation by this maker that leads me to say that she is under-rated.  These earrings are just plain fun!  I have a brooch and earrings set by Caviness that is similar – scroll down to see it.
