Masriera: Spanish jeweler Llus Masriera (1872-1958) was born into a family of jewelers and artisans. He was a creative genius and inventor who rose to fame during the Art Nouveau movement. His jewels, mainly his series of winged nymphs, are some of the most important pieces of the time period. Masriera is credited with formulating a specialized enameling technique referred to as “Barcelona Enamel”. The process took translucent enamel and blended it with an element inducing luminosity; the newly minted enamel was then formed in relief, adding texture, volume, and depth, creating a sculptural quality to the individual design.
