These elegant rosé gold tassle earclips were made by Marianne Ostier in the 1960's.
Marianne Ostier (1902-1976) was the primary designer behind Ostier, Inc., a jewelry firm she ran with her husband, Oliver Ostier in mid-century Manhattan. Ostier was known for her intricate mountings and organic textures that reflected her training as an artist.
Marianne Ostier studied at the Vienna Academy of Arts and Crafts and was a practising painter and sculptor when she met her husband, then known as Otto Oesterreicher, a third-generation court jeweller in Austria. They came to the US in 1938, after the annexation of Austria, and started a jewellery business under their new name.
