Lily of the Valley Bracelet
Item Number: BR585
A sculptured bracket of art nouveau style lilies-of-the-valley and joining leaves span across a split shank oval hinged bracelet.
This bracelet has strong Art Nouveau influences in its winding stems and leaves. Botanical subjects were important in expressing the curvilinear shapes and undulating lines that defined the Art Nouveau era through 1910. The 'new art' brought design innovations that weren?t derived from any previous art form or period. It stressed hand fabrication over precious metals and machined manufacturing. In its day, it was expensive and avant garde. Although it occupied less than two decades of popularity, the Nouveau aesthetic remains. This fragile bloom represents innocence, purity and abundance. The flowers are attached 'en tremblant' which heighten their great appeal.
A passion for the past has inspired this artist to bring back a part of history. Her designs and manufacturing techniques are unrivaled, blending historic themes with current fashion trends. It is a 500-year span of historical influence that is reflected in all of the designs of her jewelry.
