These abstract earrings are inspired by Robert Delaunay's Rythme n°1 (1983) from the National Museum of Modern Art in Paris. The circular forms characteristic of Delaunay's later work began when he started painting the sun and the moon. Using a color palette that was bold and eclectic, he referenced their shapes and orbits to create a sense of movement.
