This was very true due to the gorgeous designs that came out of this period. This era focused on women and the beauty of nature and the pieces were often large. Enamel was a common material used in Art Nouveau jewelry as the period was more about the importance of the design over the materials used to create it. The Art Nouveau period happened before the start of the first World War, when mass manufacturing took over the production of many products, including some jewelry. Enameling originally dates all the way back to the ancient Persians of Meenakari. The technique involves bonding powdered glass to a base, usually gold, by firing (heating and melting the glass onto the metal). The glass hardens to form a layer of pigment over the metal. Enamel is made of colored powdered glass or may include clear powdered glass that is mixed with colorful metallic pigments. It was used by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Celts; and later the Chinese and Georgians. It resurged in popularity in the 20th century. It is primarily used on decorative art or jewelry, usually small in size. Besides jewelry, enamel can also be applied to glass, ceramic, stone, and various other materials. Taille dEpargne, sometimes called black enamel tracery, is a variation of enameling where lines are engraved directly into the metal to form a design. These lines are then filled with opaque enamel, usually black, to emphasize the engraving. This technique was often used to decorate bracelets, watch cases, chatelaines, and mourning jewelry. This method of enameling was popular through the mid-1850s. The item “Antique Vintage Art Nouveau Gold Filled GF Taille d’Epargne Enamel Earrings 2.3g” is in sale since Sunday, August 30, 2020.
