Ronald Hayes Pearson Gold Biomorphic Brooch with Turquoise   $1,675   

Ronald Hayes Pearson (1924 -96) is considered one of this country's most influential figures in metalsmithing. He regarded precious metals as plastic substances to be stretched or elongated into simple, elegant forms. This 14 karat gold brooch with a turquoise stone clearly reflects that philosophy. The gold is twisted to two different planes . The brooch measures 2 inches wide x 1 3/16 inches tall, although it can be worn in any direction.
