A Little Bit of History
Throughout history artists use nature as inspiration for jewelry. The Art Deco period, known for the stylized insect forms becomes the inspiration for this silver pendant. King Tut’s tomb opening as well as motifs from China, India and Japan influence the design of this period and adds to the flavor of the period. One never tires of the clean linear lines, the geometry and the graphic quality of the designs.
