Atomic Spiral Earring, Teal & Purple
Made from an assortment of vintage glass beads and steel findings. The total length is approximately 2 inches long and finished with a silver plate, Unlike most of my pieces, these earrings do not have my signature because they are too small for it to fit. This piece is actually part of a series called "Linear Compositions" for which my inspiration came from the playful lines and shapes created by early twentieth century Abstract Expressionist artists such as Paul Klee, Joan Miro, and Pablo Picasso. I’m amazed at the ability of these artists to take a simple line and depict a complete form or imply an action, emotion, even gravitational tension.
