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 1970's, consists of sections of mother-of-pearl, onyx and crushed coral expertly inlaid into a silver-tone bezel mounting. The earrings measure 1 1/8" in length and 1 3/16" in width, each with their own distinct shape to fit the inlaid pieces. Each earring is hand signed "Celia Sebiri", one signature is clear, the other very faint. The silver-tone findings have their original patina. Excellent condition. Great set from an American designer.
