"Eleanor Caldwell's jewelry has been exhibited in major regional and international exhibitions. In the Walker Exhibit in 1955, she showed an ebony and sterling silver pin in a primitive, biomorphic form. ... Her work is exceptionally well crafted and has a simplicity of design derivative of cubism and primitivism as they relate to the abstraction of natural forms." Marbeth Schon, "Modernist Jewelry 1930-1960 The Wearable Art Movement"
