Rare 1980's Eve Kaplin kinetic Brooch made from enamelled metal. This piece utilizes many of Kaplin's iconic features such as bright cheerful enamel and kinetic parts. Simply amazing piece from an iconic Memphis era designer.
This piece is from my personal collection of Eve Kaplin. Rare and Unique.
Eve Kaplin Kaplin's whimsical enameled jewelry was first created in the 1970's in New York. Many of her pieces are kinetic (movable) allowing the wearing to change the piece as desired. Sadly, in the early 1980's Eve Kaplin passed away at the age of 28. Kaplin used to sell her work at the MoMA and has work in the Smithsonian. Kaplin's works of wearable art are very rare and highly collected.
Size can change, but measures approx. 3" x 3" No Visible hallmarks (her pieces are very rarely signed) Good vintage condition with some enamel flea bites. Not noticeable when wearing.
