Renee Lalique.

No introduction is needed when mentioning this master of Glass and Jewels. But I will grace you with one anyway. 

Born in France (1860-1945) Lalique's work is stunning, with many pieces that are tied to nature and the female form. His glass designs are by far the most recognizable in the world, and have been copied by many, since the 1920's and 1930's. During the 19th century 'Art Nouveau' was largely inspired by the Japanese influences that poured into Europe and helped shaped there sense of creativity and design. At the time all the jewelry houses of today came of age; Tiffany's, Bulgari, Cartier. During his early years Lalique worked for Cartier, using gold and silver, as well as ivory, glass and semi-precious stones. 


Below are some of Lalique's famous works, including glass and jewelry.

Well I'm happy you intro'd me because these pieces are beautiful!! Fab blog too honey :) and since you obviously know what's hot in style, culture and entertainment right now I wanted to ask if you've heard about If Looks Could Kill yet? If not, I’m currently working with Toyota and I’m really hyped to spread the word about these new interactive webisodes and thought you might be interested in more info about it. They follow an aspiring fashion assistant, Bianca Turner (Femi Emiola, Wicked Wicked Games), who is a prime example of a woman who’s got it going on. I’m talking the dream job, a man who’s got all the ladies drooling, and the spice to keep it all together when hell hits the fan. Think James Bond meets Sanaa Lathan in “Something New”, Bianca is the girl who isn’t afraid to run in her Louboutin heels!

You’ll have to see what I’m talking about. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the first episode—Haute Pursuit—where Bianca’s handbag is stolen and the chase begins. Everyone knows you should never mess with a woman’s purse, haha. The 3rd episode To Paris With Love was released this week too! FYI: Don’t be surprised when you find yourself being reeled in like bait. That will make two of us!

I hope I didn’t overstep my bounds by directly contacting you. After viewing your blog and seeing how hip to the game you are when it comes to what’s hot and current, I figured this would be something that would catch your interest.

Looking forward to hearing from you honey!

Best,
