Straight from the world’s most exclusive catwalks comes this fabulous vintage example of true Parisian bijoux d’art by ACCÈS-OCEAN! This is where modern art and jewelry meet: a stunning pair of sterling silver discs that dangle-drop to geometric resin blocks embedded with flashing opalescent foil.

In the late 1960s, French designer Caroline Anderson studied at L’Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris; afterwards she went to New York, soon becoming involved with The Factory, Andy Warhol’s legendary creative cauldron. She launched ACCÈS-OCEAN in 1975. Working with wood, metal, resin, polyurethane, and plexiglass, her jewelry creations are more modern sculpture than jewelry. Christian Dior, Helmut Lang, Christian Lacroix, Jean Paul Gaultier, Lancôme and Guerlain all featured her work in their fashion publicity; ACCÈS-OCEAN was also represented in various galleries in Paris, San Francisco, and New York.

Remarkably fresh and fun after all these years, these future-retro earrings are still way ahead of their time!
