    This was a sleeper picked up a while ago, unmarked however clearly a Knox design for Liberty & Co. It tests as 9ct gold and is about 25mm (an inch) long.

    I credit it as an early piece circa 1900 because these wire-work fabricated items generally seem to come from Knox's earliest period of jewelry designs.

    An interesting feature of the Liberty Arts & Crafts pieces is the fabulous veined turquoise they used, probably sourced from the newly (re)discovered USA mines. This was quite a novelty at the time compared to the pure blue Persian type previously favored in Victorian era jewelry.

      It is called spider web. Looks like it is probably sourced from here in Bisbee AZ. Nice find!
