They are all wrapped in ribbon and tied with a bow. The earring centers of citrine glass are surrounded by furled petals. The brooch has a rollover safety clasp; the earrings are screw-backs. Pieces by this maker were all hand-made and very three-dimensional. This set is extraordinary! Scroll down to see a 1940s sterling bracelet with citrine flowers by the same maker.
