Marci Zelmanoff: Repousse Silver and Gold Bracelet
From a well-known collector’s estate, this Marci Zelmanoff 1970’s repousse cuff bracelet made by the artist in sterling silver and 18K gold in the signature organic style of the artist. The domed bracelet, for a small wrist, wraps around to the side, and is 2″ at the widest. Zelmanoff was a jewelry artist well ahead of her time. Her feminist, bold, sometimes feverish constructions appealed to women wearers, but were generally ignored by the burgeoning art jewelry institutions and media. Today her work is recognized for its originality and singular vision.
