The 1960s saw a radical shift from the “matching gloves and hat” epitome of style to the wildness of the Rudi Gernreich swimsuit. Accordingly jewelry went right along with this flip. The tailored look was usurped by what we may refer to as kinetic art of the 1960s which provides us with a fourth dimension – that of movement.
Flourishing during a time of change, kinetic pieces often incorporated natural forms with a design that offered some type of movement within the composition. Here we are confronted with a modernist perspective in pursuit of wearable art. A globe of natural coral spins on an internal axis within a framework of 18k yellow gold. Superb line and proportion contribute to a visual experience unlike one experienced before.
