      In the art nouveau period became the hand work of the goldsmiths threatens because of the new mechanized working methods. Moreover one got in this period the idea that did not exaggerate luxuriously tidy was. For this reason one tried new make ways in making jewels. One used thereby nor always Rozen, and Nightingales as an aim but for example also Marabues and wings of butterflies. Large examples of goldsmiths of that time period are: Réne Lalique, Lucien Gaillard, Wolfers etc. This manner of making jewels continued to in Art Deco. From this period pin descends therefore probable also.

      The bracelet is beautiful. Are some of the panels just brown and black? Sorry to hear about your daughter - hope she's in good health. This website is a great place to escape daily worries for awhile.
