Ronald Hayes Pearson American Modern Sterling Silver Black Onyx Pendant Necklace

About the Item

Sculptural pendant necklace with oval onyx stone at its center, created by Ronald Hayes Pearson (1924-1996) of Rochester, New York. Necklace has a wearable neck length of approximately 17" with a 3.25" drop. Pendant itself measures 2.25" in length by 1.75" wide and is signed Pearson. In very good vintage 1960's condition. The following was taken from the Rochester Institute of Technology with thanks: Ronald Pearson and other craftsmen, opened up the first retail shop to exclusively sell unique and limited production craft items that was owned by practicing craftsmen called Shop One in Rochester, NY. Metalsmith John Prip, cabinet maker Tage Frid, ceramist Frans Wildenhain, and Ronald Pearson recognized a need for this type of outlet to sell their work. They organized and managed Shop One in Rochester, NY. After opening and running Shop One, Pearson became a full-time studio artist. Mr. Pearson was a founding member of the Society of North American Goldsmiths.
