Rene Lalique began his career as a jeweler. He turned his main business toward glass making, but always continued designing jewelry as a sideline.
Thanks for the links. The photo of the green leaves originated there apparently, but I had found it using Google images.
Did anyone else see the Antiques Roadshow episode? I'm not sure if it was new or a re-run. The valuation was over $2,000 for the 20 opaline leaf beads with some chipping on original silk ribbon. One bead was signed.
I had a few red beads that are attributed to Lalique in my research. I wonder if I still own them... they are not in the 'red bead' box. They were a thrift store purchase over 30 years ago. Not until yesterday had I learned anything about them.
