This is a classic Art Nouveau piece with a casual rich colour scheme. The focal is hand painted in Russia by a very skilled artist from the famous Fedoskino school near Moskow. The image is a reproduction of a painting by Alphonse Mucha. The iridescence of the shell comes through when moved into the light. I used a square handmade ceramic component with a geometric motif and a jasper stone right under. My favourite element in this piece is the combination of deep rich tones of lapis blue in the square Japanese beads with the garnet fire polished Czech beads. There are also 2 symmetrical metal fluorishes on each side and some glass Czech flower beads. The mother-of-pearl eagle picks up a little from the shapes in the main image.
Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939) was a Czech painter, illustrator and graphic artist, living in Paris during the Art Nouveau period, best known for his distinctly stylized and decorative theatrical posters. He produced illustrations, advertisements, decorative panels, and designs, which became among the best-known images of the period.

|Care & Maintenance||
Do not let perfume or cosmetics come in direct contact with the beads and components. While I choose my material carefully and I try to provide the best quality, if not properly taken care of, all beads will change or lose colour or shine in time if exposed to chemicals.
Handle the fragile components with care especially the clasp area. Be gentle! Because I use lots of fragile components made of clay or porcelain, I advise to keep the jewellery in their own boxes out of harm's way. I do consider repairs, but subject to certain conditions.
