Celia Sebiri, New York, (1913-2006) enjoyed a jewelry designing career that spanned more than thirty years from the 1960's - 1990's. She was instrumental in paving the bridge between costume and fine jewelry and was a winner of the Cody award in 1973 for her jewelry designing. Her hand-crafted pieces were sold in such prestigious stores as Neiman Marcus, Saks, Sakowitz and high-end boutiques. She also designed for Avon in 1987. Her daughter, Karen, worked with her in designing works of art.
This lovely pair of clip earrings, circa 1970's consists a crescent-shaped brass plate over-laying a base of faux brown speckled coconut shell to which is attached a large oval faux ivory/bone cabochon in a brass bezel mounting. The round earrings measure 1 1/2" in diameter. Both are stamped "Sebiri" and one is also hand-signed "Celia Sebiri"; the brass fittings have their original patina. Very good to excellent condition. Great set from an American designer.
