Trompe l'oeil earrings with mussel, key and lip in silver
The idea of a pair of earrings is challenged by the trompe l'oeil effect of the three hoops. One jewel resembling three. The signature Wouters & Hendrix lips, referencing Dali's surrealist Mae West Lips Sofa, and the mussel, inspired by Marcel Broodthaers' Mosselpot, are symbols that has lived through many years of Wouters & Hendrix collections.
From the collection La 'Fête des Bêtes’
Bending the traditional rules of jewellery-making while winking at surrealism, this collection embodies everything Wouters & Hendrix is so very fond of. And just like in surrealism, the meaning behind the designs and symbols from this collection is for the wearer to interpret and make their own.
Take good care of your precious jewellery.
Material: Sterling silver 925 and Swiss blue topaz
