Beautiful Christmas bells demi of a pin and earrings by Doddz (aka) Dodds! Finished in white antiqued enamel on metal impressed with gold colored enamel, the pin features three bells drawn together by a ribbon and topped with holly leaves. The holly berries and bell clappers twinkle with lovely red rhinestones. Morrison (2002) dates the set to a 1968 Jewel Creations kit, and Carroll (2010) finds it again in the 1975 – 1976 Jewel Creations Catalog.
The brooch measures 2" wide by 1 5/8" tall and closes with a rolling barrel clasp. The 1 ¼" by 7/8" clip earrings feature a matching bell with a red rhinestone clapper, adorned at the top with holly leaves and red rhinestone berries. In near mint condition, all pieces in this beautiful demi are marked © DODDZ in a rectangular cartouche on the back.
Each piece of your beautiful vintage costume jewelry will be sent to you wrapped in archival quality, acid-free tissue paper and placed in a gift box tied with ribbon.
