While there is much information regarding the late artist Enid Kaplan (1954-2002) online and in magazines, finding a piece of her work for sale is difficult.

According to www.EnidKaplan.com

Enid Kaplan was a studio jeweler, sculptor and mixed-media artist who taught, lectured and exhibited all over the world. Her work, ranging in scale from 1″ to 20′, has been widely published in books and magazines, and is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Art and Design in New York City.

We are proud to present this fantastic necklace and complementing earrings.
All 3 pieces are signed "E. Kaplan", and are very well made.  The necklace has also been inscribed to a friend "to Judy Love, Enid"
The necklace has the year '83, and the earrings are dated '84.



NECKLACE:
Measures 19" long.  Each link is a tiny triangle shape, each one a little different.  Lots of detail and fine work.  It brings to mind the post-modern Memphis-Milan Movement of the early '80s. The clasp is clever and unique, as seen in photo #3.

EARRINGS:
The very long (4") earrings obviously are a pair, however they are different, creating extreme visual interest.
Pierce posts.

Niobium
Niobium features many of the characteristics of precious metals. It is rare, difficult to refine, and highly resistant to chemical attack. It is malleable and hypoallergenic - and its price is above the current silver spot. You might call it a "semiprecious" metal.
