Artist Statement: This is a piece I started sketching on as my contribution to The Wire Artisans Guild challenge ART NOUVEAU. But somewhere along the way it travelled in time and ended up more as an EDWARDIAN piece.
Even if it doesn´t fit as an entry for the challenge, I like it a lot. So swirly, and intricate.
This piece is so feminine, in a way women strived to achive in the past millenium, so what name could be better than the title of the old ENIGMA song RETURN OF THE INNOCENSE.
Several other artists work with a mesh background and here is my version wich gives a new look to the scrolls and swirls I often include. One is wonderful Sheela from www.eclettica.etsy.com, www.eminjewelry.etsy.com and Joanna Watracz (soon to have an Etsy shop: www.joannawatracz.etsy.com).
