new mucha collection from thebeadedlily



Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939) produced a flurry of paintings, posters and illustrations, as well as designs for jewellery, carpets, wallpaper, and theatre sets in what became known as Art Nouveau (French for 'new art').


He has always been a favorite of mine and this collection focuses on him and another current obsession-- the use of color.

I have plans to enlarge the collection with earrings and then I'll just see how it's received before I expand it farther.

Innocence, from the Sweet Figments giveaway left for it's new home today and we're about 50 tweets from a winner on my Twitter giveaway-- as outlined below!

  1. What a beautiful idea to illustrate Mucha's drawings and paintings in jewelry. The result is simply gorgeous, great work to find the same colors and create such beautiful necklaces.

    I am waiting for the earrings.
