    Lapis Bead Czech Art Deco Drop Earrings

    , , ,

    A pair of lapis glass beads, each capped with flower-petal-shaped metal, form these Art Deco drop earrings from the former Czechoslovakia. The lower bead is 1/2-inch in diameter — the size and color make these earrings are a bit bold in effect. The original screw-backs were replaced with sterling silver lever-backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. Scroll down to see a selection of Art Deco lapis pieces to wear with these earrings.

    Silver German Machine Age Ikora Bracelet by WMF

    , ,

    An unusual example of vintage German jewelry, this silver link Machine Age bracelet was made by Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik (WMF). This German company is best known for its Art Nouveau and Art Deco silver-plated tableware. This silver-plated link bracelet from the Ikora line closes with a hidden, tongue-in-groove clasp. The warm patina is the result of the oxidation process the jewelry department used in its manufacturing process. This wonderful bracelet is attractive, yet neutral enough to be worn with a variety of attire for a range of day and evening activities.

    Lapis, Marcasite & Sterling German Art Deco Bracelet

    , ,

    The blue (glass?) stones in this 1930s marcasite and sterling Art Deco bracelet actually look more like sodalite than lapis lazuli, because they don’t have the brassy specs usually found in the latter. Whatever the case, the color is fabulous, and the workmanship is typical of the high-quality pieces produced in Germany before the World War II. This lovely bracelet closes with a hidden tongue-in-groove clasp with a safety hook. This shade of blue coordinates really well with several of my Art Deco pieces – scroll down to see them.
