Few flower arrangements are as charmingly simple and simply charming as a bunch of daisies. Orli has achieved the effect of randomly grouped daisies while nodding toward the simple floral patterns of the applied Arts and Crafts movement. These earrings feature clustered vintage glass flowers in white and yellow, the unmistakable color combination of these iconic blooms. Orli says, “Daisies were a big part of fashion culture in the Sixties and Seventies, but they’re beautiful in their simplicity and can adapt to many different environments. In that sense, they’re rustic and timeless.”

Orli likes beautiful things, and in this, she suspects that she is not alone. In fact, she suspects that you may agree. After all, form often follows function, but within form, there are multitudinous opportunities to amplify aesthetic appeal. Enter the movements of applied art, an all-encompassing approach to art and creativity that reaches far beyond the fine arts to touch industrial design and everyday objects with aesthetic design. Using fluid draping, clear and strong colors both bright and soft, and Orli’s characteristically deft blending of vintage and modern styling, Aesthete pieces are inspired by four such movements: Bauhaus, Art Neouveau, Art Deco, and Arts and Crafts.
