Bernadette is one of the middle generation of Eustaces (out of at least three) who are well-known and highly reputed for their award-winning jewelry. This eye-catching pin is a throwback to her parents’ well-loved style of the early 1970’s.Natural, fiery red coral warms up a graceful arrangement of sterling silver. The elongated feather, or leaf, and tubular flower – which resembles a squash blossom – gleam and glitter against a darkened background. Rounded, and one stamped, silver dots embellish the main design.Natural red coral might as well be gold, so high is the wholesale price. The artist has prudently left the highly polished coral in plain, organic forms, rather than risk carving the pieces, as her folks did. The result is a lovely play of texture and smooth surfaces, cool silver and warmly glowing coral, all contained within a gracefully curvaceous design. The design is a family “heirloom”, but the interpretation is the artist’s alone, and it is absolutely beautiful. Gracious and graceful, this pin will light up your whole wardrobe, in every season.
