Claude Chavent (1947-) developed his reduced-geometric jewellery during the 1990s. The illusion of three-dimensionality and perspective is mainly caused by texturing the surface with a metal brush, the earrings are almost completely flat.
The pair represents a typical example of Chavent’s jewellery creations which form part of numerous public and private collections, e.g. the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris.
