Kit Carson vintage costume jewelry
Rare brooch from the Alice in Wonderland collection by American jeweler Kit Carson. The collection repeats the fairy tale characters created by Alice’s first illustrator, John Tenniel. Made of engraved silver. The technique of overlapping elements, typical of the master’s works, gives the brooches additional expressiveness. Marked Kit Carson sterling 1990.
The famous artist, silversmith, jeweler Kit Carson began to create jewelry under his own name in 1970 when he was 20 years old.
He grew up on a ranch in Arizona and later attended the University of Oregon, where he studied engraving, drawing and sculpture. Arizona based artist, he painted, made large sculptures out of rusty metal, and made jewelry by hand. His jewelry is made of sterling silver, gold, precious and semi-precious stones. Now the designer is 70 years old, and his products made in the 1970s and 90s are highly collectible.
Carson lives and works at Cactus Camp in New River, Arizona with his wife, artist Aryana B. Londir. Noteworthy, the status of his trademark changed to “cancelled” in 2013. However, in 2013 he won the prestigious Sonny Tuttle Spirit Award at the Western Design Conference in Jackson Hole, WY. Also, his website kitcarsonjewelry.com is not available at the moment.
