Danecraft has been producing jewelry since the 1930s and is especially respected for it's Danish Modern styles of the '50s and '60s. With predominately botanical themes, designs are generally light and airy, resplendent with curves and curls, embellished with fine line etchings -- reminiscent of Art Nouveau freedom and movement.
The leafy necklace and earrings set presented exemplifies the firm's signature style. Finely striated leaves are linked by curled stems in the necklace. Leaf tips are swept up and over the connections, lending an incredibly natural presentation. Complimenting clip earrings feature larger versions of overlapping leaves. Pieces are crafted in gleaming sterling silver with age appropriate patina and personality. From Danecraft.
The necklace is adjustable to about 16 1/2 inches with charmed extension chain and hook closure. Decorative center spans approximately 9 1/4 inches x 3/4 inch with a maximum 1/2 inch profile or height. Matching clip earrings are about 1 3/8 inches x 7/8 inch.
