Intarsia, sometimes known as Florentine Mosaic, is an art form dating back to the 1300's or earlier. The technique involves inlaying gemstones into other gemstones, wood or metal to create stunning jewelry pieces.
At The Silver Bear, everyone is sure to find the perfect jewelry design to compliment their wardrobe and Augie also welcomes custom requests.
Thank you for reading...Wendy
