Something To Make A Squawk About During the roaring twenties’, costume jewelry took a turn for the exotic, inspired by natural and botanical themes. The stylism of many Sweet Romance brooches is inspired by this influential era.
News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - Shelley Cooper’s bird pin collection catches the attention of all who pass by with bright colors and great replication. The macaw, cockatoo, and love birds chirp with praise about the stylism of the Sweet Romance range.
The Macaw Parrot is a beguiling juxtaposition of geometry and anatomy. A wide curling ellipse forms his head while his feathered chest and plumage suggest the shape of the actual bird. Even the back of his wings and tail are engraved with feathers. The Cockatoo flaunts his show-stopping plumage of vintage cut crystal stones. Though his hand painted crest, head and chest are beautifully anatomical, his body, wings and tail are a dazzling configuration. The Love Birds are #3 in Shelley's bird pin series. This time, the style is tropical deco, with the curlicue as the central design element, repeated in the crest, wings and tail feathers. Hundreds of crystals define the colored plumage of these beautiful sculptures.
