B
asket Motif Jewelry




BASKETS

have been a favorite motif in jewelry for years. Fashioned
in all styles using many different materials, these are a real delight
to wear. One style popular in the Victorian era was called the
"giardinetti", or little garden. These basket bouquets were small and
detailed and were often made of pastes set in silver or gilt silver.
Marcasites are another stone used alone or combined with pastes. By the
20th century, glass and rhinestones were used, sometimes in enameled
settings. Some were even made in Goofus glass and reverse painted, and in
Lucite which was reverse carved and painted. My own personal favorites
are the baskets made by Ralph DeRosa circa 1940 (see below). They are
multi-layered and use both wonderful stones and enameling to create
intricate beauties.
