Artist in Residence. Lalique.

Rene Lalique 1860-1945. French, ground breaking jeweller and glass artist. 

Larrikin and artistic genius. Heart-stoppingly delicate creations drawn from nature.

Some might call me old fashioned, but the workmanship and whimsical nature of the designs are something to marvel at....

What appears to be a delicate flower is a 
hairpin of translucent horn and tiny diamond encrusted
floral clusters.
