I’m used to seeing knitting patterns and dress patterns in women’s magazines, but this little article from November, 1936, surprises me. “These pieces are far more easily made than you may think to look at the illustrations. The tools are few and simple and the materials inexpensive.” Were “German silver and pewter” really inexpensive? Surely you’d need to use the tools on more than one project to justify the cost of buying them. I wonder if there were more patterns like this one.
The sea horses are dress clips; the seagull and angelfish are brooches, and the bracelet has links featuring stylized skate, crab, octopus, and John Dory fish images.
I wonder if anyone has seen these vintage costume jewelry pieces? And wondered why they were not signed or stamped….
