Studio Series: Colletta Earrings & Originals by Linda Colletta
For Studio Series III, Loren partnered with abstract expressionist Linda Colletta to bring you gorgeous handmade earrings inspired by the spontaneity and strength of movement and color composition.
Only 8 signed and numbered sets are available for purchase. Earrings and artwork are sold together. Customers select which painting they would like to arrive with their earrings (while supplies last.)
The Original Paintings:
Linda's work embraces improvisation of gesture and paint, which is reflected in the energetic compositions and bright palette of her work. She's a believer of embracing mistakes and making the most of every resource—including the occasional splash! For this collaboration, Linda used an unexpected combination of grey, poppy red and orange to create the 8 paintings, which became the inspiration for Loren's design.
The Colletta Earrings:
Featuring geometric curves and soft playful edges, Loren's hand-soldered design is airy yet bold. Like Linda's paintings, the design is based in a mix of movement and texture—a study of give and take. Loren used archival vintage glass stones and dip-dyed the tassels for each pair herself. Together with the paintings, we love the free-spirited, colorful results of this collaboration.
