Byron Wilson Sterling Silver Moonstone San Francisco Modernist Brooch

About

Sterling silver and moonstone squiggle brooch created by Byron Wilson of San Francisco, California. Brooch measures 1 3/4" by 9/8" and is signed Byron, Sterling on reverse. Suitable for a man or woman and in very good vintage condition. From the artists website: Wilson was a founding member of the Metal Arts Guild of San Francisco alongside other jewelry artists such as Bob Winston, Florence Resnikoff, Margaret de Patta, and Irena Brynner. He was an important figure in the California studio jewelry movement in the mid-twentieth century, and he incorporated the prevailing modernist philosophy into his designs. Margaret de Patta, was also a founding member of MAG and a friend. She was a great influence in his work. Byron Wilson’s art often incorporated organic shapes and color contrasts formed through the utilization of natural materials like ebony wood and walrus ivory. The use of strong geometric elements, made from precious metal, helped to frame non-reflective components. He also made use of innovative casting methods to create forms in silver that were difficult to achieve through hand fabrication.
