One of my dreams for Clouds + Ladders has been to make jewelry inspired by artwork for museum stores.
I was so excited when the Baltimore Museum of Art Store curated a collection of C+L jewelry to complement their Joan Mitchell exhibit earlier this year (That's me in front of one her dreamy paintings!)
Most recently I had the extreme honor of working with the buyer for the Philadelphia Museum of Art, who sent me a sneak preview of some Matisse works to be included in their upcoming exhibit.
Using a fabric in the background of Odalisque with Gray Culottes for inspiration, I created an earring design. I made each earring by hand, so each is slightly different.
The other jewelry that I made for the Matisse Exhibition Store for the PMA was chosen to coordinate with his bright and cheerful still life paintings.
