The serpent has been a potent symbol throughout time. I have wanted to make a piece of jewelry featuring a snake for a while now. And the flowing, sinewy lines of the AN aesthetic seemed to perfectly compliment the way a snake moves.
Feel like a slithery, otherworldly being in this piece as a pendant, or an ear hanger
The Art Nouveau style was a design aesthetic popular in the US and Europe from 1890-1910 that can be seen in art, architecture, and craft of the time. Flowing lines, and natural themes were popular elements in AN design. Artists and craftspeople were trying to break away from old ways of doing things, and so the "modern" or "new" aesthetic took hold, and paved the way for the very popular art deco style. The feelings of playfulness, whimsy, and wanting to pioneer new ways of being are what draws me to the AN aesthetic, and what I hope to capture with these pieces.
