Art Deco & Nouveau Earrings


Decorative art style from the 1920s and 1930s, characterized by precise and bold geometric shapes and strong colors and used most notably in everything from architecture, furniture, art, and jewelry.  The term Art Deco is a shortened form of the event's name: Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes (International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts). The Art Deco movement was an extension of the Art Nouveau. 

Baz Luhrmann’s film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s "The Great Gatsby" featured extensive use of the Art Deco patterns and styles.  Cities such as New York, Chicago, and Dallas embraced this design style. Several of our designs are inspired by the  Art Deco buildings in the Fort Worth area. 

Art Deco Jewelry embraces a timeless bold pattern of elegance, glamor, and sophistication. Cate’s Concepts art deco designs embrace these same qualities in each piece of earring, charm or pendent we make. Even though our earrings are made of metal the wood simulates these qualities with the added advantage of being lightweight, hypoallergenic and nickel-free.
