About the Artist:

Art Jewelry Creations, Inc. (also known as ModeArt and Art Mode) produced costume jewelry from the 1950s through the 1970s. Arthur Pepper founded the jewelry company in New York City, and the company had a very broad range of designs and styles. However, many collectors find that Art vintage costume jewelry is comparable in quality and style to the better-known Florenza vintage costume jewelry or Hollycraft jewelry.

Although it is difficult to typify Art jewelry, because there was such a broad range of styles, many popular Art pieces included pins and sets of pins and earrings with multi-colored combinations of stones in swirling gold-tone that resemble a paisley pattern.

Art also used light-colored stones in bracelets and necklaces that often remind collectors of Hollycraft pieces. And, Art had many fine figural pins and also often used very bright enamel on pins and earrings.

Many collectors look for the Art costume jewelry pieces that imitate Art Deco, Victorian and even Renaissance designs. The figural pins are also very popular, along with the sets and Art Christmas jewelry pieces. The many enameled pieces produced by Art are often very attractive, but are not as valued by collectors. Still, they are nice, wearable pieces, even today, and readily found and fun to spot.

When it was made, Art jewelry was not expensive, so it was within budget for many people. It was also highly available, particularly in department stores all over the country. Since Art jewelry was mass-produced and marketed, it is fairly easy to find and collectors can be choosy about only buying pieces in excellent condition.

Art jewelry may be signed “ART” in all capital letters. On pieces made after 1955, “ART” is followed by the copyright symbol. Many pieces were signed “ModeArt” or “Mode-Art.”



Product Description:

This unusual vintage green enamel Christmas ornament brooch is a wonderful holiday find. Manufactured by Art Jewelry Creations in the early 1970s, the brooch is in good vintage condition, with only some enamel worn away on the leaves of the pin. In fact, the gold-tone metal has been intricately shaped into mistletoe leaves with berries and bow. The gold surfaces remain shiny, and the pin and clasp mechanism is in working order. As the hallmark of the jewelry designer, “ART©” appears on the backside of the brooch at the top on the leaves.

This cheery ornament brooch would make a wonderful holiday gift for a family member or friend as well as an excellent addition to any costume jewelry collection.
