Francisca Flores Resin Heart Earrings
We can't get enough of bold chunky jewelry. This trend has lasted several seasons, and we suspect, will hold longer that the broader 80's trend that has been popular the past few seasons. While we've never heard of Francisca Flores before, these earrings (and the matching bracelet to be posted later) made us an instant fan. Cast resin hearts in rust are bound in gold wire and suspended from a smaller heart which hangs upside down. The signature tells us that Flores was/is based in Paris, and there are several contemporary French designers doing a similar look now. These also resemble 80's jewelry by YSL and Lacroix.
