Fantastic sterling abstract brutalist style brooch with blackening along the inside. Brooch is in excellent condition with very minimal wear - comparable to age. Included with purchase is a silver converter so it can be worn on a necklace if preferred.

A message I receive from Fred Pearce on 1-25-2022 directly about this brooch: "Thanks for sharing this PN12. We designed this in 1965 and it is still a favorite. Brutalist perhaps, but we were heavily influenced by Scandinavian design at the time. Our current pin style numbers are in the 500's."   

Fred & Kate Pearce have been a design team since their student days at the Syracuse University College of Visual and Performing Arts in the mid 1960’s. Fred and Kate received B.F.A. Degrees in 1967. Fred in sculpture & Kate in Metalsmithing. In 1969, After teaching art in Public and Private schools, they moved to Deer Isle, Maine. There they developed a saleable line of cast and hand forged jewelry. Throughout the past fifty-five years, Fred and Kate have developed an ever-changing and uniquely stylistic approach to their jewelry work. The Pearce’s creations have been widely exhibited.
