Just hooked on the earthy yet elegant quality of his work. So primitive. Love the dirty old copper penny smell too! I often wonder who origianlly owned each piece that I have purchased. Just bought my 3rd piece this week.

I am so glad to see you, imageEvent, having the sterling silver Rebajes cuff bracelet with mother of pearl and pearl center. I have the bracelet and was wondering what it may be worth in todays market? Your site is such a wonderful source of info with the marvelous photos. Thanks!!

I have a silver pin and matching earrings marked "Rebajes"  The pin is a design of two theater looking masks - one smiling and one frowning. The earrings are one frowning and one smiling.  Any idea of the value?

my husband and I enameled copper pieces sent to us from Frank Rebajes...back in the '50's....bracelets and belts!  Any info on these pieces?

Frank would come and visit us in New Haven, CT...we'd play and laugh and do a little business....we enjoyed him very much and visited him in NYC where he had the most beautiful shop.

I am hooked on Rebajes!  Started out with just one piece that I found last month in my mom's old jewelry box... .On a whim, I searched ebay,,,,and now own about 7 pieces. Is there a price guide available? I did buy the burkholz and kaplan book  but there are no prices just beautiful photos!!! How do I know the true value of these lovely pieces??

See Copper Art Jewelry: A Different Lustre by Burkholz and Kaplan for more details and fabulous photos.

Rebajes elephant on the left.  Elephant on the right is not copper and is by Orb, who apparently bought out Rebajes molds? designs?  Anyway, you can see the similarity between the two pieces.
