Jewelry from the Art Nouveau period found inspiration in nature with a focus on artistry and craftsmanship, individuality rather than costly gems or mass produced pieces.
A resurgence in the use of enamel decoration made its way to the forefront. Designers of that era were more interested in the creation of an other-worldly composition meant to evoke primitive impulses. Often enticing, sometimes erotic yet definitely demanding of an emotional response, polychromatic enameling frequently duplicated the hue found in nature.
Quite fabulous, the 14k yellow gold link bracelet features five enameled octagonal plaques, each set with a faceted aquamarine, total weight of 7.9 carats. The pale blue sparklers rise up out of a yellow gold bezel in an attempt to related the earth with the celestial sky.
Connecting the plaques are six flower buds of yellow gold, each set with a natural saltwater seed pearl nesting within the petal folds. Completing the bracelet is a box clasp of enamel and gold set with seven old European cut diamonds, total weight of .35 carats (color J-K, clarity SI1-2).
All hand made, truly a once in a lifetime's jewel for the wrist.
