Hello and thank you for your interest in our inventory. Today up for your consideration is this BEAUTIFUL par of Santo Domingo Depression Era Mosaic Earrings.
The Santo Domingo, Depression Era Jewelry was made from the 1920-40s. During the Depression materials were scarce and the artists had to use whatever they could find to make their jewelry, usually necklaces and earrings. These materials include Bakelite shards, Gypsum, Plastics from combs, pails/buckets, Dairy Queen Restaurant spoons & forks and crushed turquoise. Many times old phonograph records or car battery casings were used for the backing material. These necklaces, earrings and sometimes pendants were sold along the sides of highways or at the railroad stops.
