Richard Bitterman vintage unique jewelry. Mr. Bitterman, of Chicago, is still creating beautiful jewelry from copper, brass & steel. You can check out his work at RichardBitterman.com. However, the current 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, 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.
All pieces are circa early 1970s
