Jewelry Through the Ages: Arts and Crafts Period

The Arts and Crafts period for jewelry lasted from 1894 to 1923. Arts and Crafts was an international design movement led by artist and writer William Morris. As a result of industrialization, there was a rekindling of the desire for handcrafted items, particularly ones that highlighted the natural beauty of a particular item or material.
