Lucite jewelry is tricky. When done right it looks sculptural and modern but a lot of the time it just looks cheap. For me,  it is difficult to distinguish between the cool and the cheesy when it comes to this resin.

Lucite was first developed in the 1930’s and in it’s purest form it is translucent and resembles rock crystal.  Though Lucite can be found in many colors and even with objects encased in it, I think Lucite is most interesting when it is clear and paired down.

The earrings below are a collectors piece valued between $200-$500 from our store in Van Nuys. They are signed of course but there is  something expressive in their shape as well.
