Delaunay inspired circular enamel and bead earrings
Solid brass drop earrings with circular forms characteristic of Robert Delaunay's later work began when he started painting the sun and the moon. Using a colour palette that was bold and eclectic, he referenced their shapes and orbits to create a sense of movement. This leap to abstraction is the inspiration for these earrings.
Ear wires are hypoallergenic. Designed by David Howell & Company to pay tribute to this artist tool, these earrings are a fun accessory and the perfect gift for artists who love colour.
Finish: Solid brass, electro-plated with non-tarnishing silver finish, hand enamelled, glass beads, ear wires are hypo allergenic.
Robert Delaunay (12 April 1885 – 25 October 1941) was a French artist who, with his wife Sonia Delaunay and others, co-founded the Orphism art movement, noted for its use of strong colours and geometric shapes. His later works were more abstract. His key influence related to bold use of colour and a clear love of experimentation with both depth and tone.
