A treasure trove of antique elegance, this collection features intricately detailed illustrations of jewelry. Bracelets, men's and women's rings, timepieces for the pocket and wrist, charms, and other bijoux abound, rendered in classic styles as well as with a distinctive Art Nouveau flair. Selected from a catalog published by a noted Berlin jeweler at the turn of the twentieth century, the designs include gold brooches studded with pearls, opals, and precious stones; finely engraved pendants of crosses, anchors, flowers, and hearts; and chains in styles both subtle and elaborate. Novices and experienced crafters seeking inspiration for their own creations will find this book a rich resource. Its royalty-free images also offer a splendid profusion of choices for other design projects.
