Celia Sebiri, New York, (1913-2006) enjoyed a jewelry designing career that spanned more than thirty years from the 1960's - 1990's. She was instrumental in paving 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 fantastic Torsade Necklace, circa 1970's, consists of thirteen strands of multi-style beads in several sizes and shapes, composed of natural agate, ceramic and faux wood and mother-of-pearl. The massive brass clasp holds a large faux bone piece measuring 1 1/2" by 2". The necklace measures 18" in total length, which would be shorter if twisted as a rope. The clasp is hand-signed "Celia Sebiri"; the brass fittings have their original patina. The necklace is in excellent condition. A great piece from an American designer
