You know your Manet from your Monet. Your Impressionism from your Expressionism. Your Picasso from your Pissarro.
Not to worry. A new line of handmade glazed ceramic necklaces and earrings by sculptor-cum-designer Vick Bevan is the perfect way to start your collection without going broke. Choose from the pool (an O shape), pod (three intertwined doughnut-like rings), or slab (color-blocked rectangles) designs, in a palette of earth tones and yummy brights, including sand, coral, lime, and caramel (starving artist?). Each ceramic piece is tied to a similar shade of silk string, while the earring is a variation of the same three designs on posts.
If the jewelry box is overflowing, check out Bevan’s fierce soap spikes, a symbolic bed of nails for your Irish Spring.
And if that’s not art, we don’t know what is.
