Art Deco is actually a mix of many different styles, all yearning to be modern looking and luxurious in its heyday.  There were many influences which shaped Art Deco - Cubism, exotic Asian art forms and even the then new materials appearing like chrome, stainless steel and plastic.

For me though there are certain elements which shout Art Deco, one of which as the stylized fan shape.  British designer, Nicole Beer, of Rubycurls has a beautiful cabochon design tutorial shown above which really captures this element.

Overlapping patterns are another feature of Art Deco.  A great example is this ring tutorial by Erika Pal of WireArtTutorials.

I see Art Deco echos in the main stem area  and the criss crossing of wires of this beautiful pendant again by Erika Pal of  WireArtTutorials.  Erika called it her Art Nouveau pendant. Art Nouveau predates Art Deco.

Erika's other Art Deco/Art Nouveau pendant tutorial utilizes a popular shape in jewelry making.

This tutorial shown below, is a variation of the one above - a bold design which includes a beautiful gemstone.

This incredibly complex design is actually called the Deco pendant tutorial!  It is by  IMNIUMTutorials who specializes in detailed designs.
