An Art Nouveau gold, plique-à-jour enamel, pearl and ruby pendant, by Georges Fouquet, circa 1898. The pendant designed as an orchid decorated with plique-à-jour enamel, centring a round faceted ruby, surrounded by four small pearls set to the anthers, mounted in yellow gold, suspended from a gold chain set with gems.
Aaaaahhh! I am SO PUMPED that these finally arrived! After some delays I’ve finally got my very first enamel pin design up and in the shop =) It is a homage to Peridot (and her gem!) and I absolutely plan on making more for the other gems if this little guy does well because honestly it is just so cool to hold a piece of metal that’s also my art in my hands and I want to make ALL THE PINS!
I am considering setting up a pre-order option for future pins because they take a little over a month to be made, and being able to pre-sell them means I’d be able to make more faster. I’m thinking pre-ordered pins will also come at a slight discount as my way of saying thank you for supporting me =)
not only with this etsy shop, luckyhorsepress, but with all my enamel pin finds today — make sure you click through and check out all the other varied and creative designs that these artists have to offer! for example, beyond this cool prism terrarium, psychedelic ‘far out’ button, and honestly weird tv dinner styles, they’ve got household objects, animals, food, and more.
