Art Nouveau Headwear


Artist Statement: Purchased originally for photographic purposes, this is a Phyll Smith original handmade, which was made to order with specific coloured stones Headchain / Headdress ~ Ultimate Mucha inspired Headdress (in Goldtone)

"Inspired by the artwork & drawn beauty of Alphonse Mucha Headdresses...Shown in Antiqued Brass Ornate Filigree stampings ... from Diamond/square shapes, to scroll & other drops & Large side Ornate Rounds.... this creation is Very time consuming as it has a Multitude of Multi colored Pearls wired to filigrees & dripping from stampings. Colors on this piece range in what I like to refer to as Harvest Earth tones... Burgandy/Brick Red, Teal, Bronze, Carmel, Yellow, Taupe beiges, Olive green/Browns... pearls are also a mix of smooth & Faceted. Along with 2 large Amber beads... one in each center Large round on sides. Wirework is a mix of some brass & Yellow Gold filled... along with Yellow Gold Filled (YGF) bead spacers throughout drops. Pictures cannot do this piece justice as far as detail & beauty of these pearls. (piece is somewhat weighty with side rounds. Fastens in back with extension chain & handmade hook." http://www.eyescreamjewelry.com
