1950'S MODERNIST SILVER & ROSE QUARTZ NECKLACE BY ART SMITH

Price Upon Request
  • Description
    A sterling silver and rose quartz necklace by American studio Jewelr Art Smith.

    A similar necklace can be seen in Marbeth Schon’s ‘Modernist Jewelry 1930 – 1960 The Wearable Art Movement’, page 72.

    Dimensions: 4.5 inches in diameter, with a 3.625 inch gap. The Rose Quartz ball is marble-sized. The neck collar is circa 1960 and is in excellent condition.

    Art Smith’s modernist designs were integral to the parts of the body they were made to adorn; his jewelry, though sculpturally advanced, was not made to stand alone, but to be worn. ‘A piece of jewelry, he said, is a ‘what is it?’ until you relate it to the body…Like line, form, and color, the body is a material to work with.” Marbeth Schon’s ‘Modernist Jewelry 1930 – 1960 The Wearable Art Movement’
