A quintessential piece of Art Nouveau design, this pendant, and a matching chain is the work of Art Nouveau designer Louis Zarra. Sculpted from 18k yellow gold, the pendant takes the form of a beautiful woman with flowing tresses surrounded by flowers and water lilies. She is reminiscent of the mythological water nymphs in John William Waterhouse's legendary Hylas and the Nymphs (1896), a subject that lends itself well to the grace and whimsy of the Art Nouveau style. Plique-à-jour enamel fills the three-dimensional pendant with soft green hues that perfectly complement the overall design. Delicately crafted, the exquisite pendant embodies the finest qualities of the Art Nouveau.

A nearly identical pendant attributed to Zorra is illustrated in Art Nouveau Jewelry by J. Sataloff
