    So I have this Richard Kerr brooch. I was about to start to design an assemblage necklace with it but thought I should first look him up to make sure it's just an average brooch. When I look up Richard Kerr jewelry ALL of the jewelry is covered in tiny glitzy crystals. I can't find
    anything he made that is as elegant or "subdued" as this brooch. Not sure if that makes this considered RARE or if it is not worth anything because it's NOT like all his other stuff. I think it's just crazy that I can't find anything by him that is like it.
    I added the last picture to give you an idea of his other jewelry designs.

      Welcome to CW,
      Hopefully someone here has some better info for you!
      All I know of Richard Kerr is that he made wild and bold jewelry in the 80’s. ( photo 3) He invented some kind of adhesive that made it possible for pave’ set stones to STAY PUT!
      His jewelry sets can run into the three figures, so I wouldn’t alter the brooch until I was sure of it’s history, or just leave it be.
      Your lovely brooch looks older, 1960’s maybe? Wear it! Enjoy it! Love it!
      We have a saying here...”Bring back the brooch”! Good Luck!
