I was recently given the gorgeous book, Rene Laliqué – Exceptional Jewellery 1890-1912 and am thrilled to be adding it to my treasured library of jewelry books.  Recognized as one of the world’s greatest glass makers and jewelry designers of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods, René Lalique was an incredibly creative artist, designer, and technician in all his work.   This book includes gorgeous pictures of his jewelry and glass work, and, for those of you interested in jewelry drawing and rendering, many of his stunning drawings as well.
