This bracelet has a bold profile, yet is thin in silhouette so it lays flush and firm around your wrist with the bow upright. On the Machine-Age Movement. The machine age movement began in the United States after World War I, when there was an explosion of industry and technology including skyscrapers, automobiles, airplanes, and streamlined, metallic trains. Artists and jewelry makers, inspired by the newfangled aesthetics and Zeitgeist around this modern landscape, created machine age jewelry. These pieces featured the clean, efficient lines of machines and the sheen of metal. They allowed people to express with fashion the excitement of the modern age. “Period pieces” refer to those pieces that feel quintessentially of a certain era or movement. These pieces include the typical design elements associated with that period for a classic look. Period pieces are emblematic of culture and trends at the time. _gsrx_vers_1271 GS 8.3.4 (1271).
