Arts & Crafts Movement - 12mm Turquoise & Sapphire Brooch or Watch Pin - J36867
The Arts and Crafts Movement flourished between the years of 1860 - 1920. It began in Britain, c. 1860, where the artists where disillusioned with the impersonal and automated ways that the Industrial Revolution represented. It moved to the United States in the 1890's through 1920's where Americans were more appreciative of the use of machinery. Known for the high quality materials, classic craftsmanship, simple forms and often romantic ideas, this movement was represented in jewelry, architecture, painting and sculpture.
