When you sit beside a stream or pond the busy dragonfly darts past catching bugs and this design is lovingly copied to produce an amazing brooch.
This small Dragonfly brooch is
50 mm in size and Hand welded with the best Ballou safety catches, pins and hinges.
Few of the busy metal stamping factories, clustered around the Marais district in Paris, survived the First World War. The houses of Gruson, Prat and Janvier (who worked closely with the master jeweller Lalique) are no more. The skills that worked out the elegant, feminine and intricate lines, which are now called “art nouveau”, perished with the French poilus (soldiers) and disappeared with Verdun. Many of the heavy tools however, cut by hand into the steel of that time, are still in existence; and if you know where to look, and are prepared to subsidise the work, jewellery, brooches and ear-rings from this priceless resource, using silver or brass can still be made.
Most of our jewellery is stamped in these old dies, first in brass and finished and silver-plated.
So it follows that our art nouveau style jewellery range does not represent replicas of old pieces and is no more than the same pieces in brand-new condition.
Thus our small Dragonfly brooch is old yet new

Some people say that a Dragonfly was created to carry angels down to earth so if you see a beautiful dragonfly hovering and darting near you then you might have been visited by an angel – make a wish.
