Earrings, from Metalphysics Fall / Winter 2012 collection, 2012
This pair of earrings exemplifies Delettrez’s humorous and unnerving interest in depicting human anatomy. Elongated black onyx and diamond teardrops dangle from white marble “fingers.” The fingernails are formed by a small cluster of diamonds on one nail and fiery madrepore stone on the other. Delettrez is a fourth-generation member of the Fendi family, whose work takes inspiration from surrealism.
