These sterling silver earrings by renowned studio jeweler Alexandra Solowij Watkins feature a pair of pendants accented by faceted amethyst beads. Like all good abstract art they call to mind multiple imagry with the curved silver pendants at the bottom resembling boats, pendulums, or seed pods.

Alexandra Solowij Watkins has been creating superb jewelry and holloware since the 1950’s. Her work is in the collections of many museums including the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and she has been represented by many galleries including Artwear in New York, Mobilia in Cambridge, Patina Gallery in Santa Fe, and Atelier Janiye in Boston of which she is a co-owner. According to the Atelier Janiye website she says: “I make structures for the landscape of the human body. My fascination with structure, negative space, and with indigenous architecture translates into dimensional and wearable pieces.”

SIZE: 1-7/8" long from top of surmount

MARKS: "A. Solowij" "Sterling"

AGE: mid-20th century. Based on the style of this piece, the signature, and with comparisons of contemporary Solowij Watkins pieces, I believe this is from fairly early in her career.

CONDITION: excellent condition with very minor signs of wear.
