For The Love of Art Nouveau

Thblackgoldnouveau3

I have always loved the Art Nouveau era from jewelry to architecture. As you can see from the above examples it has a great influence on my jewelry designs.  There is something about the free flowing forms and nature that I find so appealing.

I am fortunate that I have had the opportunity to travel to Europe and see the beautiful architecture first hand from Germany to Prague in the Czech Republic.

The above is an example off of a building in Coburg, Germany.  I have many more examples of beautiful architecture to share soon!  The two bracelets below are how I like to make the Art Nouveau a bit more edgy.

My Fairy Garden Gnome Necklace

I have this amazing old German gnome fairy riding a grasshopper figure which I adore. One day I was looking at him and thought ooh he would make a cool pendant.  I of course didn’t want to destroy him. I had just discovered Ice Resin and mold making so figured I would give it a shot.

Here is my gnome figureImage

Isn’t he a cutie?

Here is the mold that I madeImage

I mixed the Ice Resin per instructions and poured it into the mold.  Once the piece was cured I removed it and then painted him.

I held onto him for quite some time as I wasn’t sure what to do with the little fella! Finally decide upon this:Image

He’s not perfect but I love him!
