"Reverse Curve" Bracelet with oval silver, gold(vermeil) and oxidized striped beads. Tests as sterling though it is not marked as such. This is an early piece by designer Elizabeth Garvin. It is in very good preowned condition. Some of the vermeil is a little dull on two of the beads and the oxidation on the curves is worn away in some areas otherwise it would be in excellent condition. This bracelet can not be polished as it would remove the finish. It is very lovely as is and will continue to acquire patina with time.
Measures 7.5 inches long with some give, and 7/8ths inch wide.
Weight = 49.22 grams
Took me a while to find out who made this unusual piece but I was able to determine the maker with the help of JL Townsend of The Vintage Advantage.
From Gallery 28 website -
"Elizabeth Garvin graduated with honors from New York University in 1986, earning a
bachelor of Arts degree, with further studies at Parsons School of Design and
Massachusetts College of Art. Jewelry by Elizabeth Garvin is exhibited internationally in
many galleries and museum stores as well as home furnishing and design focus
boutiques as an example of contemporary design in wearable art.
Her goal as a designer has been to create forms with classic elegance and enduring
quality, while integrating various techniques and at times parting with tradition as a part of
her overall design concept. Each piece of jewelry is handmade in her New York studio
from sterling silver. Applying various techniques of patterning and finishing, each piece is
playfully graphic, yet sensibly made to be surprisingly affordable. Her approach to
designing form, engineering movement and developing techniques often draws as much
from architecture and industrial design as from the traditional craft of jewelry making. The
result is an approach to design that is at once timely and timeless."
