Richard Bitterman (1930-2012*) vintage unique jewelry. Mr. Bitterman was based in Chicago. He was active as a self taught artist for 45 year, creating beautiful jewelry and objects from copper, brass & steel. His later designs are much more refined than his early, raw pieces. These pieces were sold at very high end stores such as Neiman Marcus. One half of Decotini.com (Ron), remembers buying an ornate belt buckle at Giorgio's of Beverly Hills in the early 1970s. Sorry, that one remains in our private collection.
Wearing this jewelry is always an attention getting maneuver. We had these pieces in our showcase at the Chicago Modernism Show years ago, and I can't tell you how many people stopped to ask "Are those Richard Bitterman?"
All pieces are fully marked with his unique signature.
**Mr Bitterman sadly passed away in 2012 after a fall in his home. His obituary can be found at legacy. com.
