The key to mastering the abstract earring, is to choose pieces with imperfect shapes. Designers such as Marni and Roksanda showcased a large collection of unexpected styles and textures on their runways for SS18. Think twisted wires, hanging stones and opposing hues. In contrast, artist turned jewellery maker Claire Barrow painted abstract images of animals on weirdly shaped textures. Much like a painting, we’re left wondering where her thought processes lie. There’s something oddly satisfying about Paula Mendoza’s Shiva earrings. Like a sculpture, they wrap perfectly around the earlobe offering an alternative take on the season. Whether you’re a Picasso fanatic, or a lover of style statements, take a leap and exhibit some beautifully misshapen earrings.
