This is an early and unusual piece designed by Bill Schiffer, jewelry artist who helped define the "wearable art" movement of the '80's. Schiffer designed jewelry usually made of plastic resin that was embedded with colorful plastic stones. The themes were often risque and outrageous that pushed limits to the very edge. He was located in Soho before it became the trendy neighborhood that it is now. This piece is an early one signed and dated 3-25-72. It is made of a thick material probably poly resin. It is very shiny. It is not thin as is his usual items. It is a large heart that is essentially a bright ruby red with complements of lime green and hot pink painted in a scrolling manner. The piece is not flat and there is dimension to it. It is a stylized and modified heart and when looked at you can see the early expertise of the artist. It is signed in bubble gum pink on the front "Schiffer." It is also etched on the back "Schiffer (c) 3-25-72." A safety pin is glued onto the back. The pin measures 2 3/4"w x 2 1/2"h x 1/8"d. The pin is in excellent condition with some pin point marks on the back. If you wear your "heart on your sleeve", let it be a Schiffer heart. Sure to be noticed and admired.
