Inspired by a hair comb by Rene Lalique entitled “Two Swallows with a Stalk of Oats,” this stunning brooch by Marilyn da Silva truly keeps the Art Nouveau spirit alive. Made in da Silva’s trademark style, the metals of the brooch are coated with gesso, which the artist uses like a tiny canvas for her colored pencil renderings of feathers and beaks. The brooch is then sealed for safe wear so your feathered friend can accompany you on any adventure.
