Completedworks Gold the Dishcloth of the Metropolitan Elite Earrings and Salvador Dalí’s The Persistence of Memory
A foray into the theory of relativity, or simply a painting inspired by a wheel of Camembert melting in the sun? Dalí insisted it was the latter. One of the most recognizable works from the Surrealist movement, pay homage to the decadence of diffusion with these gold dishcloth earrings. It’s all relative.
Shushu/Tong White YVMIN Edition Single Ceramic Hand Earring and René Magritte’s The Dawn of Cayenne
Consider the dichotomy of form and function, the inherent value of scale. Or just wear this earring—sometimes all you need is a hand.
Ottolinger Black Rubber Dipped Drop Earrings and Joan Miró’s The Tilled Field
Inscrutable, organic forms—a theme in Miró’s work upon moving to Paris, but also maybe manifesting in these earrings. Dip, dip, drop earrings.
