"ALICE CAVINESS" in block letters on oval cartouche

These 1950s ear clips by Alice Caviness feature layers of citrine and golden-topaz glass beads along with aurora borealis diamanté, mother-of-pearl disks, and textured brass leaves. These elements are wired onto a brass mesh back, which is mounted on a filigree scalloped-edged disk. 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! Scroll down to see a similar pair of earring with matching brooch, also by Caviness.
