Art nouveau jewels
Art Nouveau (Sezession, Jugendstil). Art Nouveau really showcased ornamentalism, and luxuriated in natural colors and forms. Our Art Nouveau jewellery is inspired by several of the different streams that flowed into this movement. For example, we draw upon Czech Art Nouvau (secesse), whose most famous representative was Alfons Mucha, as well as Scottish Art Nouveau as developed by the architect and artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868 - 1928) who was the most famous representative of British Art Nouveau. Mackintosh primarily worked in Glasgow, where he founded the collaborative artists’ group “The Four” which was influential in the “Glasgow School” movement. Art Nouveau was also influenced by industrialism and Japanese design.
