These earrings showcase two vintage Czech glass rondelle beads handcrafted by a talented glass artist at the pinnacle of his centuries-old craft.

We paired these sweet glass beads with sinuous brass stampings that radiate Art Nouveau elegance. Art Nouveau blossomed at the dawn of the 19th century, and its heyday was over before the First World War broke out in 1914. Nonetheless, Art Nouveau remains a cherished artistic style with impacts far beyond its short-lived trendiness.
