This Art-Nouveau (“new style”) pendant comes from the Hamilton & Young Mackintosh collection which remains very popular due to its flowing lines and natural simplicity, a combination making each piece aesthetically beautiful. The artist, Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928), won numerous awards throughout Europe and a reputation as an innovator of design. He eventually became the main representative of Art Nouveau (new style) in Great Britain and inspired jewelry designers, including Clarice Cliff, to break from tradition; to become innovative and original in their work. To him, beauty must come from within and be creative. Jewelers should become true artists by abandoning the rigid lines associated with mass produced jewelry, and embrace individuality, creativity, and free flowing design where two pieces can be similar, but not the same.
