A bouncing ball produces smaller and smaller arcs as gravity acts upon it, indicated by the decreasing size of the copper disks comprising a shape that’s happy and cheerful, emotions also appear in the Cyrkle’s “Red Rubber Ball.” The warm, red tones of the copper further lend this brooch an aged finish. Orli says, “This song by the Cyrkle is about moving on and recognizing that things are going to work out, and I thought the notion of a rubber ball bouncing also resembles movement, starting at one point and ending at another.”
Some say the Sixties and the Seventies were the best of times. Some say they were the not-the-best of times. Pretty much all say they were also the colorful of times. Dramatic change affected everything, from society and politics to music, art, and fashion. Social movements reflected the progressivism of a modernizing global society, cultural movements reflected youth rebelling against older ideas and styles, and lively, striking color exploded everywhere. Costume jewelry packed with bright hues and bold beads became pervasive, the more audacious, the better. Kaleidoscopic pays homage to this massive rush of peace, love, and style with high-voltage shades and shapes and a distinct combination of both vintage and modern lines.
