Modernist Rebajes Copper Triangle Leaf and Coil Pin BroochModernist Rebajes Copper Triangle Leaf and Coil Pin BroochModernist Rebajes Copper Triangle Leaf and Coil Pin Brooch

Anyone who can use old plumbers tools to create animals out of tin cans that end up being discovered by the director of the Whitney Museum in N.Y. must be something special. And that's exactly the story of Frank (Francisco Rebajes) and his unique talents. He was one of the first craft jewelers in 1930s Greenwich Village and his quirky art deco / modernist designs helped coin the phrase 'wearable art'.

This signed REBAJES copper leaf and coil brooch is circa 1950. The large pin measures 3 by 2 inches. The design features a triangulated leaf etched with vein lines. A thick copper 'vine' coils around the leaf. There's a secure rollover clasp on the back.

Copper jewelry is popular for it's abstract mid-century modern design and Rebajes was the master of copper...thanks to some tin cans.
