View Full Version : Thinking about Lalique

04-19-2010, 04:10 AM
Hi all! Made this this morning with the help of my 5-yr-old....it's been a hectic few weeks as Spring launches itself and working on projects like this is one of my daughter's favorite ways to unwind with Mom.

I've checked out a book of Lalique jewelry (http://www.amazon.com/Jewels-Lalique-Yvonne-Brunhammer/dp/2080136321) three times in a row from the library this Spring. I can't stop looking at it; I am enamored. The book includes many exquisite sketches as well as the jewelry derived from the the sketches. The palettes of his original illustrations and the nature-based art noveau design are fascinating to me. I would love to see a brooch made with a dove and apple blossom theme by Lalique....I imagine it would be exquisite.

Technique: dove stencil from stock photo, frame stencil from Dubtastic's blog (http://www2.ambientdesign.com/forums/blog.dubtastic.com), and crabapple photos I took a few days ago......

How elegant and unique, a majestic dove bedecked with jewel tones ...
a rare, dazzling treasure on the wing. So beautiful! :)

Wonderfully done Leah, it's as Mair already said. Very elegant presentation and concept. Really like the dimmed colors in the background and how they push the dove's colors and make them shine. Very beautiful. :)
