News-Antique.com - Jul 21,2009 - This unsually shaped pin designed by Shelly Cooper of Sweet Romance frames a graceful egret bird standing in a marsh of turquoise and lilac enamel set with smoked crystal. Her delicate curvilinear form is characteristic of the Art Nouveau era. Metal finish is bronze. Hidden bail allows for wear on a chain or ribbon as a pendant.
The egret bird has a close connection to Mother Earth symbolizing cooperation with nature rather than working against it. This noble creature is also associated with strength, wisdom, purity, patience, prosperity, and long life.
French for "new art," the Art Nouveau movement emphasized integrating art into all aspects of life from architecture to furniture and the visual arts to jewelry making. Artists revived the arts of the Renaissance just as the fathers of the Renaissance looked to the ancient Greeks and Romans for inspiration. Jewelers initiated a rebirth of Renaissance techniques using jewels of sculpted and enameled gold thus transforming the jewelry industry into that of true artistry.
