Maker’s Marks and Timeline:
(1904 – 1989)
- Made Jewelry to Protest the Emphasis on Cost of Materials vs Design in Jewelry
- Quote: My object is to show the jeweler’s art in true perspective – where the design and craftsmanship are to be valued above the material worth of the gems, as in Renaissance time.
- First jewelry pieces commissioned by Eric Ertman of Finland.
