Today Beadsaholic brings a preview of Mama Beads latest collection Noveau.
This past weekend I received the details of the latest collection Noveau from Mama Beads inspired by Art Noveau. Available today at Mama Beads and Story in the Bead. I’ll have a complete review soon.
Photographs and details are courtesy of Mama Beads:
“Between arabesques, feminine figures and big nature representations, the Art Noveau style was developed. With its pale and smoky shades, ornamental curves and wavy elements, the humor of the Noveau pieces is mystic and romantic, besides having a mild aura, like a breeze that hits your face and refreshes. And directly connected to the ornamental style of the XX century beginning, Mama brought the connection between art and nature as the main feature of extremely detailed and delicate pieces: meet the new collection Noveau.”
“With the intention of translating all the freshness and delicacy of the Art Noveau style, the new collection pays tribute to one of the favorite Mama’s theme: the feminine body in all its singularity and beauty. There are curves, pearls and orchids translated into jewelry inspired by the feminine, by art and by naturality, where the water moving, the flock of birds and even the flowers growing is a fertile field to artistic manifestation.
And in the middle of this exuberance of details, we face a big and extremely diversified collection. There are earrings, chains, beads, pendants and rings, all guided by the Art Noveau style and, specially, by the work of the Czech painter Alphonse Mucha, the one who produced the art series that directly inspired the most significant pieces of the collection: the bead deal As Marias.”
“At the height of his fame, Alphonse Mucha, the Czech artist exponent of the school of art Noveau, dedicated one of his great inspirational moments for the series of pictures The Art, that consists in four colour lithograph pieces where each one of them represents a different artistic manifestation: the Dance, the Painting, the Music and the Poetry. But the artist’s creative mind, leaving aside any musical instrument or any traditional tools as pencil, canvas or brushes, emphasized the capacity that the natural beauty has to inspired presenting each of the four with its own personality and special time of the day.”
“From there, Mama did her spell and the circle of inspiration continued to give fruit. Along with the illustrator Danilo Augusto (@daniloaug), we produced our own rereading of the four artistic manifestations, as in Mucha’s series. By bringing their body’s representation to the current days and molds, the Marias were born: four sterling silver beads, each one inspired by one of our rereading. Sisters of art, sisters of soul, daughters of the beauty, of the creation and the imperfection. Meet our watercolors (that has been turned into postcards! ♥)”
“Meet more about each one closely:
“Attentive, Music puts her hands to her ears: who knows where is the next nature song coming from? A nightingale that sings from its branch, the water that rises from the source on the ground or the rustle of the leaves in the wind. Because the first one who doesn’t fall in love by her that shoots the first rock.”
“Is it her that admires the flower or the flower who admires her? She was born daughter of the admiration for the world and the nature is what sparkles the Painting’s eyes. The flower in her hands irradiates inspiration and her moment is the day in its fullest: the perfect hour to choose the colors of a news painting.”
“Your existence is divine. With the calm that only those who are artists know, she contemplates life surrounding her. We don’t know if it is the moonlight or the leaves moving, but her eyes already can see: a new verse is born, feel welcome, Poetry.”
“Between a twirl or another, she will manage to get your attention in just one blink of her long lashes. Her hair flows in the rhythm of the autumn breeze: sensual, she is Dance.
But beyond beads and all the inspiration around the new pieces, the Noveau collection came ready to surprise you. Meet our new muranos, the first lampwork releases of Mama!
100% handmade and inspired by nature, the Noveau Collection brought The Morning Breeze and The Moonrise, two beads murano type produced in sterling silver and glass, besides the new dangle The Nature Marble, another piece fresh release from Mama Beads. They are beads that can be considered big and are the perfect match for combinations with other pieces of the collection, as the deal As Marias and The Venus pendant, other Noveau news.”
Meet more about the details of each one of them:
THE MORNING BREEZE
“In a really detailed work, we transformed the morning breeze in a murano glass bead: light and delicate, the perfect start for your day.”
“Only the ones who have already known the beauty of the moonrise will understand where this glass bead inspiration comes.”
THE NATURE MARBLE
“Between scents, colors and textures, the nature transforms all the time. Timeless, the Nature Marble is born by the hands of mother earth.”
“The Marble Nature Dangle is a part of The Marias Deal: buy the four beads and take one Nature Marble for free!”
“Still rescuing the elements from Mucha’s work, the orchids entered the Noveau collection as a natural symbol of love and beauty. The earring pair Flourish is the perfect representation of a good silver and pearl combination. The natural baroque pearl in a rectangular shape and the silver orchid detail give that romantic touch to the collection.”
“Besides the earring pair Flourish, the orchid also decorates Mama Beads first ring: the Blossom Ring. He mixes the mysticism around this enigmatic and full of personality flower with a twisted ring exclusively design by Mama, and it is available in different sizes.”
“Another iconic piece among the Noveau collection, is the Venus pendant. Thinking about how to bring the feminine beauty to the Noveau collection in a real way, contemplating its different shapes and bodies, we decided to pay our homage to the feminine through a tool that has being used by humanity since the beginnings: we created our own Venus, a feminine pendant in its essence, our ode to all femininity and strength present in female bodies.”
“Different of all you have ever seen in the bead or jewelry world, meet the new piece The Arabesque: just as in Mucha’s paintings, it has the role to embellish and decorate art, that is why it must be used as a type of frame to other beads and pendants, both in bracelets and necklaces. The best of it is that it is available in two different options: with colored enamel (one side green and other side pink) or black enamel, so you can choose your favorite.”
“We hope our new creations may continue to be a part of your journey throughout the world.
Feel sacred with your Noveau piece: your body is a temple decorated for life celebration.
“Jewelry for the body, tales for the soul.””

Mama Beads – ships from Brazil
Story in the Bead – ships from Czech Republic
As always, I enjoy hearing from you all and would love to know your thoughts on this release? Do you have any Mama Beads? Leave me a comment below ❤
I own The Strength, the La Loba Collection and a pair of plain stoppers. But I ordered La Loba from Brazil which was very expensive because of shipping and tax. Next Time I ordered from Story in the Bead which was better for me (living in Germany). I might get The Dance. I find the Arabesque very interesting but am not sure whether I would actually wear it a lot.

I’m awaiting my beads and I can’t wait to play with them and see them in person. I’ll be sure to try the Arabesque in lots of different ways just to see how versatile it can be. From the photos I really love Dance, too. I love the theme and ideas behind this release. Yes, I agree shipping can be a lot coming from Brazil, and am thankful that Story in the Bead carries, as well. Hoping there will be a USA store in the future. You have a nice collection of Mama Beads ☺️

The …. graces? muses? look neat and I love the premise but I think I’d really want to see them in person before committing. That’s probably unlikely, so guess we’ll have to see what happens. 🙂
