Brutalist Mid Century Modern Sterling Silver Pin

” My Philosophy Is Not Only Should Jewelry Be Well Made, But Be As Exciting As The People Who Wear It ”  Darla Ellickson.

Darla Ellickson a world renowned mid western jewelry artisan has created this magnificent brutalist Sterling Silver creation reminiscent of mid century modern era style. This pin was probably made in the 1970’s or 80’s and is signed to the verso “Darla LXN ) but no date as far as we can see.  The pin does have some slight age  marks  consistent with wear & use  but  nothing to detract from its beauty or value.  Rarely do we find a piece of jewelry that is as exciting to the eye as this creation.

J. Crew Rare Vintage Garden Flower Necklace

White pronged Rhinestones and small pink faceted crystals compliment this  J. Crew signed necklace whose main feature are these small and large white metal  and polished gold tone Tulip flowers each with a  sparkling single Rhinestone in the flower’s center.  The smaller Tulips represent buds just beginning to open. We did a little research and found this jewelry style was created by J. Crew in 2014 and quickly sold out.  The quality of the workmanship is terrific.  It’s unique in its design and you can dress it up or wear it casually.  The necklace which is in perfect condition measures about 16 inches with a generous 2 inch extension chain.  It has a lobster claw clasp and a metal signed J. Crew tag.  No need to tip toe thru the Tulips…..make a great statement with these wide awake garden flowers!
