A dance of contrasting metals and diamonds
If you’ve seen Disney’s Fantasia (you must have!) you’ll know what I’m referring to when I talk about animated sound (that’s what I’ll call it, at least)—illustrations that Disney’s animators created to show the movement of music. This happens in a number of segments throughout the film but most prominently with Bach’s “Toccata and Fugue in D Minor”; lines and shapes bend and mutate to reflect the rhythm of the music, brought to life by its sound. I talk about this because it’s the first thing I thought of when I saw Hozoni Designs‘ earrings featured here. Their lines—in yellow gold and oxidized silver—dance together in such a fluid and spirited way, causing music to play in my head. The music is worthy of a ballet, with graceful movement and beautiful costumes. Throw in a dash of drama (thanks to the bezel-set black diamonds tucked into the lower portion of the pair), and this is one memorable performance—and it all happens right on someone’s ears.
