Morning Glories & Dragonfly Necklace - Art Nouveau
The French champleve enamel button featured in this necklace is an excellent example of Art Nouveau design. Its organic shape, sinuous lines, and inclusion of natural subject matter, with the morning glory and a leaf, all typify this artistic movement.
Dragonflies are a popular Art Nouveau motif so we thought it apt to suspend a tiny dragonfly from the enamel button. We love how it elevates the delicate beauty of the antique Art Nouveau button.
