Artsy Fodder: Art Gets Bejewelled

24 Jan

Artists and designers have been inspiring each other for centuries. Whether we realize it or not, much of the clothes we wear, jewelry we sport and objects we use are a result of the symbiosis between art and design.  And I for one, love to celebrate such connections!  For this first feature in the new Artsy Fodder series, let’s have some fun with artfully inspired jewelry designs.  These pieces may not have directly influenced each other, but there is an unmistakable resemblance.

Kate Spade, City Lights Idiom Bangle


Oceanic Series by Thomas Hager


Anthropologie, Jumbled Loops Necklace


Untitled by Amy Pleasant


Paige Novick, White Howlite Cuff


Yin and Yang by Jennifer Bain

Do find yourself buying pretty baubles that remind you of your favorite artwork?  Take a look inside your own closet or jewelry box and I’ll bet you’ll see some similarities!

    Great connections between art and jewelry! I definitely have some pieces in my jewelry box that bear a resemblance to the art on my walls.
