Celia Sebiri, New York, (1913 - 2006), enjoyed a jewelry designing career that spanned more than thirty years from the late 1960's - 1990's. She was instrumental in spanning 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 1979's, consists of three brass bars, one overlapping the other two, each of which are inlaid with crushed colored stones, adventurine, amethyst and onyx. The bars each measure 1 3/4" in length and 3/8" in width, making the overall measurements 1 3/4" X 1 1/4". Each earring is stamped "Sebiri" and one is also hand signed "Celia Sebiri"; the brass findings have their original patina. Excellent condition. Unique design. Great set from an American designer.
