Art Inspired: The Lemon Earrings

If you've been tuned in to Cadette Jewelry for some time now, you've likely heard me share that my passion for modern art and design is one of the main influencers behind the majority of the line's designs, and the spirit of the brand, overall. Random fact: I was an art history major in university :-), and it was during this time that I truly immersed myself in, and gained in-depth knowledge, respect and admiration for the world of fine and modern art. This leads into my decision to share a series of very short, visual stories around the important artists and artwork that inspired pieces in the...
