Please visit my Special Collections section for unique, mid 20th century pieces by Betty Cooke, Ronald Hayes Pearson, Arthur Vierthaler, Ward Bennett, Margaret De Patta, David Jones, Jack Nutting, merry renk, Mary Schimpff, Harry Bertoia, Winifred Clark Shaw, and Winfield Fine Art in Jewelry.

Ed Wiener (1918-1991) was one of the most well-loved and respected modernist jewelers of his day. Though almost entirely self-taught, he possessed a magnificent appreciation of form, line, and color together with an amazing ability to uniquely apply the ideas and principles of modernism to his life's work.

His work is featured in every major book on American mid 20th century studio jewelry.  Biographies of Ed Wiener and photographs of his work can be found in both of my books, Modernist Jewelry, 1930-1960, The Wearable Art Movement and Form & Function, American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970 and his work was included in the exhibit "American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970" at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, 2008.  Please see MODERN SILVER magazine archives: www.modernsilver.com/Americanmodernistjewelry.htm

The following five pieces of Betty Cooke jewelry are from one collection and have never before been offered. Mid 20th century, modernist, Baltimore architect, Alexander S. Cochran (1913–1990) and his wife, Caroline Sizer Cochran were great friends of Betty Cooke and the following pieces were given as gifts to the family.  Alexander Cochran was described as an "architectural missionary." Besides being devoted to modernism, Cochran was a highly romantic, deeply religious humanist who desired to keep the best of the past while adapting to modern needs. He transformed his city, pointing the way to its later renaissance in the 1960s.

Partially taken from the book, Alexander Smith Cochran: Modernist Architect in Traditional Baltimore.

Ruth Roach (1913-1979) was an extraordinary, multitalented artist/craftsman who made a significant impact on the art world during her relatively short career. She studied painting in Chicago, both at the Chicago Art Institute and with William Henry Watson. She later took all the available art courses at the State College of Iowa. She became a potter, but later, in 1954, decided to concentrate on jewelry after studying with Robert von Neumann.  Roach had her first one-man show at the Des Moines Art Center in 1954, participated in the Third National Exhibition of Contemporary Jewelers at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis in 1955, and, for the next fourteen years, exhibited widely across the United States.  Since everything she created was intricate in nature and completely one-of-a-kind, her pieces are not readily available.  This collection comes from her family and has never before been on the market.

Please Ruth Roach, Uncommon Jeweler, MODERN SILVER magazine, Aug/Sept, 2002. Her work is featured in both of my books, Modernist Jewelry, 1930-1960, The Wearable Art Movement and Form & Function, American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970 and was included in the exhibit "American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970" at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, 2008.

Peter Macchiarini (1909 - 2001) is considered one of the pioneers of American modernist studio jewelry.  His studio/gallery was in the North Beach section of San Francisco where, beginning in the 1930s, he handcrafted unique works of art including sculpture and jewelry. Margaret De Patta was a close friend and, together with other "pioneers" of this period, they started the San Francisco Metal Arts Guild. 

Please read more about Peter Macchiarini in both of my books, Modernist Jewelry, 1930-1960, The Wearable Art Movement and Form & Function, American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970 .  His  work was a major part of the exhibit "American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970" at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, 2008. See American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970, MODERN SILVER magazine, Winter, 2008-2009.

Art Smith (1917-1982) was a New York silversmith who's African American heritage influenced his sculptural jewelry forms.  More than any other modernist jeweler of his day, Art Smith was concerned with ornamenting the human form.  His primitive-inspired, biomorphic constructions can only be truly understood in relation to the body. "A piece of jewelry, he said, "is a whatisit? until you relate it to the body...Like line, form and color, the body is a material to work with. It is one of the basic inspirations in creating form...  Art Smith's work is featured at the Brooklyn Museum in a permanent exhibit and is in the collections of many major museums and collections.

 His work is featured in both of my books, Modernist Jewelry, 1930-1960, The Wearable Art Movement and Form & Function, American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970 and was included in the exhibit "American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970" at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, 2008.  See also: http://www.modernsilver.com/villagetovogue/villagetovogue.htm

Earl Pardon (1926-1991) was first and foremost an artist who transferred ideas back and forth between the fine and plastic arts and was involved with both large-scale sculpture and jewelry, joining his love of painting and metalsmithing through his colorful enamel work.

Pardon attended Memphis Academy of Arts in 1951 and received a M.F.A. in painting from Syracuse University.  His was recognized early-on for his work in jewelry; he received a scholarship to the 4th National Silversmith's Conference sponsored by Handy and Harman, and his work was included in exhibits throughout the United States including American Jewelry and Related Objects, a traveling exhibit sponsored by the Smithsonian in 1955.

His work is featured in every major book on American mid 20th century studio jewelry.  Biographies of Earl Pardon and photographs of his work can be found in both of my books, Modernist Jewelry, 1930-1960, The Wearable Art Movement and Form & Function, American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970 and his work was included in the exhibit "American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970" at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, 2008.

Ruth Berridge (1921-2004) was an American modernist jewelry designer who worked out of her apartment/studio on East 82nd Street in New York during the 1950s and 1960s. She attended the Rhode Island School of Design, and also studied with Danish-trained jeweler, Adda Husted-Andersen in New York.

She made earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings, and hair combs.  She also made men’s jewelry including cuff links.  Perhaps her signature look can be considered the silver mobile jewelry , especially earrings, that sway with the wearer’s movement.
 Handmade of sterling silver and spring wire, the delicately balanced mobiles were called modern sculpture in miniature and made with and without rhinestone or crystal accents.  Ruth originated this design that was sold through Niemann Marcus as well as by such avant-garde shops as Design Research in New York; The Upper Story in Cambridge; and Nanny’s in San Francisco.

Her mobile jewelry was once described as “eye-catching adornments which float in the air even when the wearer’s head is still and seem to have a life of their own.”  Ruth herself said of her mobile earrings, “they behave like a flock of birds.”

Elsa Freund (1912- 2001) was a mostly self-taught jeweler. She was born in Branson, Missouri where she was influenced by the natural beauty of the Ozarks. In the 1940s, after teaching school and working at odd jobs, she started making jewelry.  Her "stones" were made by firing clay with pulverized bits of glass. Freund was an "intuitive modernist" who, though she had not seen the work of other modernist jewelers, wrapped her stones in free-form designs that are reminiscent of the work of New York jeweler, Sam Kramer. In 1949, Freund moved to Florida where she began placing her work in shops in Fort Lauderdale, Sarasota and St. Amand's Key.  Later, she also sold her work at America House in New York. 

Freund became a major figure in the studio jewelry movement of the mid-20th century and her work is in the permanent collections of many museums throughout the U.S. and abroad. Her work is featured in both of my books, Modernist Jewelry, 1930-1960, The Wearable Art Movement and Form & Function, American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970 and was included in the exhibit "American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970" at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, 2008.

He also won awards at the 1959 Midwest Designer-Craftsmen competition and the 1958 and 1959 Minnesota State Fair Fine Arts Competitions.

Lilyan Bachrach is a remarkable, versatile enamellist whose oeuvre includes jewelry, wall pieces, plates, bowls, mezuzahs, and switch plates. Her work flows easily between beautiful floral and abstract designs; she is equally adept at both. She has been enameling for over fifty years, studying with the "greats" such as Kenneth Bates and Doris Hall.

Since 1970 her Bachrach Art Enamels have been exhibited in museums and galleries across the United States.  Her commission work has ranged from cloisonné pins to architectural panels and religious objects.

Lilyan Bachrach is also an author; her first, very successful book on enameling was titled Enameling with Professionals. She has just published a new, expanded edition of her first book titled, Contemporary Enameliing Art & Techniques that discusses the techniques and materials for using vitreous enamels and has "how I work" chapters by over 30 enamel artists who share their secrets of working with the techniques of cloisonné, plique--a- jour, champlevé, etc. There are photographs of the work of over 55 individual contemporary enamelists.

Bachrach is also one of the featured jewelers in my book, Modernist Jewelry, 1930-1960, The Wearable Art Movement." Read Lilyan's biography at http://www.modernsilver.com/lilyanbachrach.htm

Philip Morton's books, Contemporary Jewelry, a Studio Handbook and Contemporary Jewelry, a Craftsman's Handbook are invaluable resources for collectors, jewelers and students who wish to learn about the history of the modern studio jewelry movement and its design principles, materials and techniques.

Morton's childhood and college days were spent in Utah.  In the 1930s he took a course in jewelry design from a WPA sponsored art project and from that time forward, he made jewelry.  His studies in contemporary art movements were done on his own.

During World War II he moved to California where his jewelry sold successfully at many of the leading shops in the San Francisco area. By 1946 he was also producing his own line of contemporary silverware and, in 1947, because of his success as a metalsmith and designer, he was invited to teach design at Alfred University at the School for American Craftsmen.  A year later he took a position with the newly formed art department at the University of Minnesota where he taught three dimensional design, jewelry making and sculpture.

In 1951 he established the first bronze foundry in any American university art program.  his own work, over the next few years was devoted to bronze sculpture and jewelry making.

Morton's work has been widely exhibited at museums in the United States and other countries.

His work is featured in both of my books, Modernist Jewelry, 1930-1960, The Wearable Art Movement and Form & Function, American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970 and was included in the exhibit "American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970" at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, 2008.

Doris Hall (1907 - 2000) graduated from the Cleveland Institute in 1929 and during the 1940s opened a gallery and studio in Gloucester, Massachusetts. She and her husband, Kalman Kubinyi later opened a studio/gallery in downtown Boston and lastly, a studio in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.

Hall exhibited in the Cleveland Museum of Art annual May Show throughout the 1930s.  She also exhibited at the Walker Art Center in 1948. She originated the idea of making enamel "paintings" by treating her copper (or silver) as a canvas and drawing in a dried layer of opalescent crackle to produce an oxidized line. 

This piece is pictured in my book, Form & Function, American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970 on page 149.  More pictures of her work as well as biographical information can be found in Painting with Fire, Masters of Enameling in America by Bernard N. Jazzar and Harold B. Nelson.

Robert Dhaemers (b. 1926), was Assistant Professor in Crafts at the California College of Arts & Crafts, Oakland, California and taught for ten years at Mills College. His exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Crafts in New York City included "Creative Casting Thirty Craftsmen" and "Art of Personal Adornment." He also exhibited at Columbia University, New York; Addison Gallery of American Art, de Young Museum and Palace of the Legion of Honor, San Francisco; Oakland and San Francisco Art Museum; St. Paul Gallery, University of  Minnesota; University of California; University of Iowa, and numerous others.

He is a sculptor who has created over dozen large sculptural works on commission. He interprets his sculptural ideas in his jewelry, feeling that it should be seen in the round: his pendants are designed to stand alone as three-dimensional sculpture.  He works mostly in lost-wax casting and credits Bob Winston as his inspiration. He exhibited a cast sterling ring in 1955 at the Walker Art Center.

Francisco (Frank) Rebajes (1907-1990) was one of the first studio jewelers to open an actual shop in Greenwich Village. He came to New York from the Dominican Republic, arriving in New York with little over three hundred dollars.  His first pieces were hammered from tin cans and scrap metal. He rose from poverty to become a successful artist and business man with a beautiful shop on Fifth Avenue and a workshop with over a hundred artisans.  His work was included in many early exhibitions and he received a bronze medal for his work at the Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques in Paris in 1937 and a gold medal for his sculptures at the theater in the United States Pavilion at the 1939 New York World's Fair.  Later in life, he moved to Spain where he created mostly sculpture.

He is also featured in my books, Modernist Jewelry 1930-1960, The Wearable Art Movement and Form & Function, American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970 and his work was included in the exhibit "American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970" at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, 2008.

Pedro Pujol was a silver/coppersmith in Greenwich Village in the 1940s-50s.  According to Armand Winfield, Pujol and Rebajes would have daily fights in the street over who copied whose designs (which was good for business because of the attention it gathered).  It is rarer to find pieces by Pujol than Rebajes since, as far as I know, he never went into serious production. Some say he was Rebajes's brother, but I do not have proof of that.

The timeless nature and clear composition characteristic of their designs gave them international recognition.  Their work is exhibited in museums all over the world.
