An article that appeared in the October 1985 issue of the Connoisseur. called Angela Cummings, “The artist of female adornment.” by synthesizing elements found in nature with conventional jewelry materials. She designed thoughtful jewelry to accessorize a woman’s costuming and created voluminous styles that are as appealing today as when they were first introduced over forty years ago. Famous for her designs in gold incorporating delicate inlay with materials like lapis, opal, mother-of-pearl and jade, Cummings aesthetic focused on a soft palette paired with organic forms that exuded feminism and charm.
Note: We cannot track any other similar piece like this, most probably is an studio piece like the famous fish bracelet.
This piece is in great impeccable condition with a great patina. The Angela Cummings pieces are highly collectable jewelry and they are a remark in the American jewelry tradition.
