Bauhaus inspired papercut earrings
Solid brass drop earrings inspired shape of a papercut piece of paper.
In 1922, Josef Albers was invited to join the faculty of the Bauhaus. Teaching the preliminary course in the Department of Design, he challenged students to utilize “economy of form.” One of the exercises he created, was the cutting of a flat sheet and making it into a three-dimensional object. This exercise was the inspiration for these earrings.
