Thomas Mann is a pioneer in the American Art Jewelry movement of the late 20th century. Based in New Orleans, has been creating jewelry since the late 1960's. His work is often very Surreal and full of Symbolism. Mann describes himself as "an artist working in the medium of jewelry and sculpture." A true piece of wearable art.
This piece is from my personal collection. Unique and rare.
Measures approx. 1.75" x 2.25" Hallmarked with the Thomas Mann logo, "TECHNO ROMANTIC", B366. Good vintage condition with appropriate wear and heavy patina for age.
