Lola Brooks: New York Water Tower Brooch
Jewelry artist and sculptor Lola Brooks is primarily known for her over scale works inspired by Victorian jewelry, but here she shows off her bench skills with an oval brooch framed in wood depicting a NYC water tower and nearby building landscape. The work is finely inlaid, incorporating sterling silver, copper, 18K white and yellow golds and 14K gold to create the painterly scene. Framed in wood, with a gold double pin back. Measures 1-1/2″ x 1-7/8″. Circa 2007.
