Midweek Modness: Bond Boyd Abstract Earrings
I’ve had these signed Bond Boyd sterling doorknocker earrings for a million years. As you may recall, Bond Boyd is a Canadian concern that mostly manufactures for the tourist trade and for institutions. They were originally clip ons that I had converted onto posts. They are typically Bond Boyd in that they are rhodium plated and have that mix of matte and shiny textures. They are atypical in that most Bond Boyd that you see is based on representational, botanical themes. The design of these earrings is clearly more influenced by Scandinavian styles rather than the more brutalist abstractions coming out of Canada at the time.
