Large Bernard Chaudron Necklace made out of Silver Plated Bronze with Burnt Orange epoxy/enamel. This piece is double sided, one side depicting a Mid Century Bird with Burnt Orange enamel and the other side has more enamel with an abstract design.
Chaudron's jewelry is very rare, only creating his jewelry in his early career. Most of his designs are abstract/geometric but occasionally he would create figural pieces. His jewelry career lasted from the late 1960's to the end of the 1970's. His epoxy/enamel work often glows in certain light, often working in stunning reds, teals, greens and oranges.
His work is uniquely different but comparable to the other great Canadian Brutalist artists such as Larin, Vidal and Alfandary.
The Pendant is about 2" tall x 2.25" wide.. The chain is about 17" in total length. No visible hallmarks but unmistakably a piece by Chaudron. Necklace is in good vintage condition with appropriate wear and patina for it's age.
