viennese art nouveau

My family and I are taking a European vacation in July, and I'm literally thinking about it every other minute! We've never been nevebeebbbthis cool -- our family vacations usually consist of either Disneyworld (my sister's 13) or camping in the Poconos. So 2 weeks in Berlin, Vienna, and Prague is a major upgrade and an enormous privilegeprivilege. We're so excited! :)
I've been dreaming of all the places I'd love to revisit (since I've previously been to Berlin and lived in Prague), though I'm especially looking forward to Vienna. It is one of the most historically significant cities for art and music, after all!

I'd love to see these beautiful Art Nouveau necklaces and brooches in person -- they're currently on exhibition at the Leopold Museum. You don't have to be a jewelry designer to be inspired by these beauties :) Oh, and a good supply of Gustav Klimt is an added bonus. Love his work. This painting's called "Life and Death". Isn't it breathtaking?
