These wonderful earrings are a mystery since I haven't been able to find out anything about their maker, Udell. Neither an internet search or a search of my library of books on modernist silver turn up anything. Despite this, they have a wonderful design and look beautiful on.
Size: 2-3/4" long x 1/2" wide
Age: Probably from the studio jewelry movement of the 1950's through 1970' reinforced by the fact that they have screw backs. But if anyone knows anything about this maker I'd love to learn more.
Marks: "Udell" "Sterling"
