This splendid brooch depicts an Egyptian man bearing a faceted, light-catching globe with which to illuminate the world. He measures 3 1/16" long x 1 7/8" at his widest point. He is in excellent vintage condition and is signed "Liztech '94" on his underside. Additionally, he has a little metal "Liztech" hangtag, which is relatively unusual.
We will borrow a description from Liztech's own website in regard to the creation of their noteworthy accessories:
"All Liztech Jewelry is made using mirrored chrome. The mirrored chrome contains three different elements – polyethylene, aluminum and an electroplated mirror surface. Each piece is wire wrapped and beaded with a coated cable wire. The pieces are all adorned using vintage stones, metal findings, parts, bits and anodized aluminum.
Liztech jewelry is all handmade in our artist studio. Each piece of mirror is hand-cut using a scroll saw. The edges are then sandblasted and burnished. The piece then gets drilled and the stones are all set in there bezels. The pieces are then wire wrapped and beaded. Every piece of jewelry then gets steam cleaned, signed and dated."
