Notes

From eBay 2011

"You will be bidding on a VERY SCARCE Studio Hand Crafted Pin / Brooch. It is a vintage piece signed by "D. Benrimo", Dorothy. She is a jewelry artist known for inspiring many famous contemporary silver smiths today. She was also an artist and photographer. She was active in Texas, and New Mexico. Her pieces RARELY come up for sale. Her husband was noted Taos Modernist Painter Thomas Benrimo. This pin is circa 1950. It is sterling silver in an odd shape with one smooth pearl, 2 rough pearls, one garnet??, One small opal, and one large opal?? we believe. It looks like some sort of out of this world landscape!"
