Kay Denning vintage costume jewelry
American artist, enameller and jewelry designer Kay Denning began creating jewelry at Brower Art Enamel Studios in 1952 (renamed Bovano Industries, Inc. in 1954). The art studio, located in Cheshire, Connecticut, specialized in metal and glass sculptures. Kay had worked for the company for nearly three decades until her retirement before 1980.
Traditionally, she created jewelry with modernist designs in copper, multicolored hot enamel and fused glass. Noteworthy, along with glass inserts, the designer used a special enamel with the effect of a smooth vitreous coating. She hand-signed her unique jewelry “K Denning” with enamel. Made by hand in the middle of the last century, today these rare items are highly collectible.
