Kandinsky Yellow-Red-Blue Earrings

$ 95.00

"A parallel between color and music can only be relative – just as a violin can give warm shades of tone, so yellow has shades, which can be expressed by various instruments." - Wassily Kandinsky

These handcrafted cluster-style earrings are just made for the art and/or music lover! They celebrate Wassily Kandinsky's iconic painting, Yellow-Red-Blue (1925), currently housed in the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, France.

Kandinsky was fascinated by the association between color and music. It has been said, "Through his seemingly infinite flow of diffusing and opposing colours, the artist sought to represent musical sounds. Just as a musician can provoke an emotional response from a viewer with merely sounds, Kandinsky hoped to produce art that alluded to emotions without the constraining influence of definite objects and physical boundaries."

  • Overall length: 2"

Our signature Petals to the Metal Earrings are shaped in beautiful, intricate clusters that are visually hard to miss, but surprisingly lightweight and comfortable. Cotton rag watercolor paper is hand-patterned using original acrylic films, cut and dapped to shape and then glazed with a glossy enamel finish. These pattern-centric petals are then set with anodized aluminum and layered to create shapes in varying lengths and sizes that are stunning from every angle. Each step of this intricate, hands-on process is performed entirely in-studio by Diana Ferguson, resulting in a true original. Petals to the Metal earrings are perfect for everyday wear or as an evening statement piece. Waterproof and UV-protected. DFJ earrings are handcrafted, and so minor variations in pattern may occur.
