However, I do know a little about jewelry. The Marcasite bejeweled, undulating ribbons in the setting and nature aesthetic, right down to the use of Amber, dates this piece to the Art Nouveau Era. The style was vastly different in aesthetic with its free-floating forms inspired by the natural world, innovative materials, and entirely new design principles. Artist-Jewelers chose to work with semi- and even non-precious materials, and their creations are treasured for their originality and design excellence, rather than the intrinsic value of raw materials. The ring is a size 6 and weighs 8 grams. It is marked (illustration 3) Twin Peaks "TH" and (illustration 8) 925. Motifs, Materials & Makers of Art Nouveau Jewelry. The Art Nouveau period c. 1914, although brief, had a significant impact on jewelry design and on other disciplines of fine and decorative art.
Chose to work with semi- and even non-precious materials, and their creations are treasured for their originality and design excellence, rather than the intrinsic value of raw materials. WE DOUBLE-BUBBLE WRAP EACH ITEM & WALK IT INTO THE LOCAL POST OFFICE.
