Clean lines. Bold geometric shapes. Practicality and beauty. These are hallmarks of modernist design. The gold plated 925 sterling silver earrings elevate the ordinary and the overlooked – a simple square, a basic rectangle – by pairing them something extraordinary – baroque, freshwater purple pearls. With a strong, modernist design perfect for a chic casual look or a special occasion, The-Designer-Was-a-Woman earrings reminds us that there’s magic and meaning in everyday moments and ordinary things.
The story behind the jewellery: The-Designer-Was-a-Woman earrings honour the forgotten women of modernist art and design. These are the women you see in old photographs of design schools and artists collectives, women whose names are recorded as ‘Unknown’. We may not know their names but their work lives on.
