Art Nouveau Silver, Mauve, Green & Black Enamel Dragonfly Brooch

133 Admirers

An Art Nouveau silver dragonfly made circa 1910-1920. It is enamelled in a delicate pale purple translucent enamel with black touches, a green upper body and black eyes. They were very popular in the Art Nouveau period because they symbolised change and transformation. The way they flit across ponds and jump from patches of sunlight inspires a kind of self-reflection and deeper thinking. While dragonflies are beautiful, they can also bite, which is why they are also seen as symbols of growth and determination. In addition to this, the dragonfly only flies for a tiny portion of its lifespan, so a piece of dragonfly jewellery can embody living in the moment and living life to the full.
