Irvin and Bonnie Burkee were a husband and wife team who created jewelry in the modernist tradition beginning in the 1940s.  Irvin died in 2007.  A more complete biography can be found in my book, Form & Function, American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970 and their work was included in the exhibit "American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970" at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, 2008.  Please see MODERN SILVER magazine archives:
