Memphis Atomic Earrings
Adding to yesterday's spotlight of Adrian Olabuenaga's Memphis necklace "Atomic", we wanted to feature the matching earrings. Adrian created two pairs of earrings as companion pieces to the necklace. The first pair of earrings titled "Neutron" measures 2 1/2" long. These post earrings are very 80's in the color and shape composition, but it's the use of the Bacterio Memphis pattern that makes them even more showcase! The Bacterio pattern was frequently used as a laminate on Memphis furniture pieces like the Carlton Bookcase & Tahiti Lamp. These earrings are currently available for $130. The second pair of earrings titled "Proton" measures 2 1/4" long. These post earrings are very aggressive with the shape and color combination! The confetti pattern was a very poular design element used by designers like Dorothy Hafner for her ceramics in the 1980's. These earrings are currently available for $130.
