Kandinsky Composition 8 Cluster Style Dangle Earrings
"Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the hammers, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another purposely, to cause vibrations in the soul." ~ Wassily Kandinsky, The Effect of Color, 1914
These cluster-style earrings are an art and/or music lover's dream. The imagery is inspired by Wassily Kandinsky's painting Composition 8, painted in 1923 and currently housed at the Guggenheim. This painting has been described as a "synthesis of Russian abstraction paired with Kandinsky's own lyrical style." It reflects Kandinsky's lifelong love of music, which influenced his work throughout his career.
2.5" long including sterling silver ear wire. Can be made longer. Click here for more information.
Durable, non-tarnish, great travelers. Clean with a soft damp cloth. Always apply spray-on hair products before putting on your jewelry.
Materials: lightweight anodized aluminum + my proprietary hand-patterned, sculpted and glazed paper elements. Waterproof and UV-protected. I handcraft each pair of DFJ earrings. Because of this, minor variations in pattern may occur.
