Popular during the Spanish colonial era in Peru, the art of reverse-glass painting dwindled until local artisans rediscovered it in the 1960s. Designs are painted on the back of glass—first the details and outlines, then highlights, then the background. Glass panels decorated with swirling floral motifs adorn this petite gold-painted wooden jewelry box.


Handcrafted in Peru. Approximately 6 3/4"W x 4 1/2"H x 4"D.

                      In reverse-painted glass, the details of a design are applied first, followed by highlights, then backgrounds. When viewed from the opposite side, the effect is a rich and layered design. Conquering Spaniards brought the technique to the New World in the 15th century, where Peruvian artisans adapted it and made it a national art form. This divided tray is a perfect catchall for a hall table or vanity.

                      The art of reverse painting on glass was brought to Peru by settling Spaniards in the 15th century. Local artisans emulated the style found on mirrors and other Spanish household objects and, in time, added so much of their own inspiration that the technique became recognized as a Peruvian craft tradition. There are a dwindling number of Peruvian artists who still practice this unique and romantic art. Here the artisan captures the ethereal beauty of butterflies on the hinged lid of a handcrafted wooden jewelry box.

                      Bangles are a quick and easy way for women to add a little sparkle to their wardrobe, but in India they’re more than just pretty accessories. In many Indian communities, women’s bangles are symbols of her marital status. Brides decorate their arms with dozens of bangles on their wedding day and never take them off.

                      Artist Mickey Lynn transforms ancient materials into a contemporary, cascading pair of earrings. She pairs fragments of Roman-era glass with drops of moonstone, clear quartz, white agate, and gold-covered pyrite. The 2,000-year-old glass is authentic; fragments like these are abundant at archaeological sites throughout the vast territory of the former Roman Empire. Lynn gives these pieces of glass, which may have once been part of a wine glass or water jug, a new life as evocative pieces of jewelry. Streams of gold-plated chain connect this timeless collection of watery hues.
