Our handmade Art Nouveau Jewelry pieces emphasize the sensuous design and clean, organic lines that characterized the Art Nouveau movement.
Art Nouveau is an international visual art style that heavily influenced the decorative arts and architecture from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. It was born out of resistance to the rigid design of mass-produced products. The result was a movement to revitalize and emphasize the aesthetics of work produced by artisans and craftsmen.
Artists and architects and designers from the Art Nouveau period emphasized harmonizing modern creations with the natural environment. Art Nouveau designs are organic and fluid in nature, being heavily inspired by shapes found in the natural world, especially the sinuous forms of flowers and plants. The female form was another popular theme and was featured in many jewelry pieces, especially cameos.
Many of our Art Nouveau jewelry designs are heavily influenced by Alphonse Mucha, a key figure in the Art Nouveau movement. He believed that art should be utilitarian as well as beautiful. His lithographed posters in Paris were instrumental in the growing popularity of this visual style.
Our handmade Art Nouveau Jewelry is cast of 100% lead free pewter. Each piece is painstakingly hand poured, filed, and polished by hand and made in USA.
