Early Laurel Burch earrings were bought in Southern California in the 1970’s/early 1980’s, before she began mass-market production. These are handcrafted flower-shaped hoops 1 ¼ inches long by ¾ inch wide. They are three-dimensional cloisonné – enamel on metal, with fine design made with tiny wires embedded in the metal. They are cloisonné all around – no “back”. They appear to be handcrafted – note the tooled edge. The flower’s stamens are soldered and firmly attached within the flower. Not marked or signed, but she had a series of intricate flower designs. From a private collection.
