Art Deco Georgian reproduction

How insanely beautiful is this ring?!  And the fact that it is an actual antique that is also a reproduction is fascinating!  This ring, made in the 1930s, is styled to look like a ring from the 1700s.  Sadly, this beauty has already sold, but it is breathtaking to look at even on the screen!

Talk about a roundabout way to be inspired, but here goes... the other day, my daughter wanted us to apply fake tattoos to her arms and ours.  I asked her to pick out one for mommy and she picked a dragonfly.  Not an insect I normally gravitate towards, but for a week I had to look at this dragonfly tattoo on my forearm, and actually started to really like it.  I started looking up dragonflies and of course, I started to fall in love with Art Nouveau jewelry featuring this beautiful insect.  Now I am hooked!  (And am even considering adding one to my sleeve tattoo design, whenever that ends up happening!)

So beautiful!  The abstract design created by the weaving of gold chains through holes in the oxidized silver circle is stunning.  I truly think I will never get tired of gold and oxidized silver!  LOVE!
