1976 Pendant One Size $300
(click to enlarge)
Sterling silver reproduction of a bronze original pendant in limited edition, each piece numbered and initialed. This unique gong style piece has a tooled attachment and sits 2 ¼" wide and 1 ¾" tall at 1.5 ounces. It was a rare late life jewelry creation that resembles the huge barn gongs, and was a prototype for a possible new jewelry line that never materialized. Our jeweler cut and then hand hammered and finished this exact replica (click here to view comparison, original on left). Includes authentication card, description, and 18" black leather cord.
       
1941 Silver Brooch One Size $200
(click to enlarge)
Sterling silver reproduction of a Cranbrook era brooch in limited edition, each piece numbered and initialed. This unique brooch has a beautifully tooled clasp and thirteen ribs with balled ends. Our jeweler cast part of it, but hand tooled much of it just the way Bertoia did. The replica is virtually identical to the original, except for the edition number (click here to view comparison, original on top). This was just the type of piece that women of high standing coveted in Detroit in the 1940s. Includes authentication card and description.
       
1942 Silver Ring Sizes 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 $250
Ring Size
(click to enlarge)
Sterling silver reproduction of a Cranbrook era ring in limited edition, each piece numbered and initialed. This is a thick but very wearable sleek ring with an angled slit. It may have been a practice piece for the wedding set of rings for Charles and Ray Eames made around the same time. Our jeweler cast it, then hand tooled and sanded it. The replica is virtually identical to the original except that the 40s piece was aluminum (click here to view comparison, original on right). Includes authentication card and description.
