It is fun to imagine the woman who originally owned and wore the SELJORD Art Deco bracelet (first image above), which I just listed in the shop this afternoon. Sea serpents are not for the faint-of-heart and the motif is extremely rare in Art Deco figural jewelry. As I was researching this bracelet I came across some other examples of antique jewelry with sea serpent/sea dragon motifs which I just had to share. All images are linked to their original sources, if you would like to take a closer look. It is worth noting that the red glass necklace, which is for sale over on ebay, is clearly made by the same company that made the Jean Jean bracelet, which is really remarkable. I would like to go back in time and spend a day in the workshop where those were made. Shhessssh.

P.S. If you have a good memory, you will remember a similar bracelet listed in the shop last year - with snakes instead of dragons.

I have been looking around for this kind of information. Will you post some more in future? I’ll be grateful if you will.

Wow! I am in complete love with the necklace displayed here. The dragon looks appealing. I had never thought that it can give such beautiful look to the jewelry.

I am left with no words to describe these necklaces. The sea serpent design is surely very unique and it will add charm to the wearer.
