Atwood and Sawyer was founded in 1956, in England, by Horace Atwood (Sawyer was a silent partner). Atwood and Sawyer produced copies of 18th and 19th century jewelry and became well known for their figurals. According to Judith Miller’s “Costume Jewelry” book, they designed many pieces for the Dallas and Dynasty TV series.
