The Art Deco Jewelry of the Roaring Twenties Flapper Girls
by Sharon Lemell of www.YearsAfter.com
The Roaring Twenties obtained it’s name from being the years of action and reaction after the war. August of 1920 Women won the right to vote! Women felt they were equal to men and they got their hair bobbed, dresses were shortened, lips were painted, dance marathons became the RAGE! The Fashions of the 20′s were erratic!
Jewelry of the Art Deco Era was to compliment the sleek dress & soften the features of the short Bob! Dangling Celluloid, Art Glass and French Jet Earrings, Swinging Long Beaded Necklaces, Rhinestone Brooches and Celluloid Plastic Hatpins, a Multitude of Celluloid and Silver Bangles added to the Razzle-Dazzle of the Flapper Outfit!
And after the discovery of the opening of King Tut’s Tomb in 1922 the Fashion resembled the Jewels of Ancient Egypt and Queen Nefertiti. AND Girls who adhered to the Modern Styles of the 1920 Roaring Twenties were known as… FLAPPERS!
A Flapper was fashionably “IN” with Long Celluloid Necklaces and Celluloid Jewelry. It was the Fashion Trend for the Modern Day 1920′s Girl! A Flapper Girl would wear a Hatpin glittering with Paste or Rhinestones through the Front and also the Side of her Cloche Hat. Cloche is a hat which is close fitting to the head.
