I really wanted to share with you the work of an old Parisian jewellery designer René Lalique. He was a prominent Art Nouveau jewellery and glassware designer from the early 1900s.
His jewellery in particular is full of gothic designs of interwoven metalwork, set with fire opals, moonstones, enamel and diamonds. He created these back at the turn of the century, but looking at some of these he was way ahead of his time.
His pieces currently sell for six figure sums.. and I can completely see why. Amazing.
