Hand-wrought studio copper, c. 195s-60s, Gret Barkin.

About Gret Barkin:
Gret Barkin specialized in copper and almost all of her work involves this fetching metal, operating out of New Hope, Pennsylvania.

Her ouput is spectacular, in particular her women’s jewellery. I like the fact that she had simple yet enduring designs with an attention to small details. Gret was active right up to her death in 2007 at the age of 99 years old, injecting a lifetime’s expertise and craft into her work, a well-needed anti-ageist beacon for these troubled times. (Credit: http://cufflinkcatholic.wordpress.com/tag/gret-barkin/)
