Modernist necklace identification

Hello! I have this gorgeous necklace, very well made, modernist sterling piece. Cannot find the maker. Can somebody, please, help me? It would be such a shame to leave it unidentified, such a unique work. http://i65.tinypic.com/2qa5zf9.jpg http://i63.tinypic.com/2jebpjb.jpg Thank you for your time!

Help identifying Old Mexican earrings

Hi fellows.
I got these nice modernist earrings, I assume from 60s-70s.
Can anybody help identify the maker? I've tried and tried, and can't decipher it.

Small tray questions

Hi.

Recently purchased a small tray in US.
Has a strange mark that I cannot find. It looks like a griffin, a winged creature of some sort.
Any help with identification will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Re: Asian dragon bracelet

I understand that, as I mentioned initially it was tested with magnet AND acid.
I've done some silver work myself, so I know for a fact that it's silver, just not sure of the purity.

It (bracelet) is not magnetic. Silver acid test showed it to be silver. No sure what purity, but definitely silver.

Modernist bracelet mark

Hi dear forum! I'm stumped, searched the internet high and low and still cannot find this mark! It seems pretty defined and I thought would be easy to find, but no luck. It's a sterling silver cuff bracelet, freeform style. I'd say 1970s. Any suggestions? http://i64.tinypic.com/s3pjdz.jpg http://i68...

Re: Silver dish hallmark question

Thank you AG2012!
As I understand it's a replica of older silver or is it one of their own designs?
And do you think it's sterling or 800 silver?

Thank you for your help!
