Catherine Deneuve wearing Man Ray's lampshade earrings, 1966.
I like a great statement earring, from the chandelier style to the bohemian feather -- or the gold spiral lampshade earrings Catherine Deneuve is wearing above, created by artist and photographer Man Ray (who I previously wrote about here). Man Ray wasn't the only artist who dabbled in jewelry -- so did Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali and Georges Braque.
The January 2012 issue of Vogue has a great six-page spread featuring some pretty marvelous earrings. They truly are works of art. I particularly like bold and colorful designs of the '60s and '70s, as seen in the inspiration board.
