For sale here is a BIG pair of vintage 1970s 80s signed handmade sterling silver with turquoise and black onyx inlay geometric modernist pierced earrings by artisan Jack Woolsey. Here's a brief bio that I found online for the artist...
"Artist and jeweler Jack Woolsey (a.k.a. Jackie Ray) was born in 1940 in Colorado Springs, CO. He learned his jewelry-making techniques from the Navajo silversmiths around Taos, NM, and is renowned for his modernist inlay cuff bracelets, belt buckles, and earrings. Some of his materials were obtained in trade with Eskimos living in the Alaskan tundra. He also created distinctive wrap inlay designs using turquoise, red jasper, black onyx, and other semiprecious stones. Jackie Ray Woolsey passed away in 2005, at the age of 64. His obituary (which you may read in its entirety in this listing's pics) says that he will always be remembered for his wit and ability to make people smile and laugh."
A striking and large pair of earrings! Measure 1-1/8" by 3/4", and the pair weigh 10.5 grams total. Marked at backs as shown, "J. Woolsey Sterling". Excellent vintage condition with fine light wear and tarnish as shown - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
