The “Beatrix” earrings are small sculptures that reflect her artistic personality. Philosopher, artist, designer, decorator, stylist, mother, sister, lover and muse, she has a beautiful motto: “In your body is a good place to be”. The jewels she wears are part of her like the scar she tattooed on her forehead in gratitude for surviving skin cancer.
We photographed her at home in Virginia, a place as timeless and magical as she is. Wonderful surprises nestled in every corner. The land surrounding the house is packed with history. “My ears are delighted with pearls-behind-doors earrings”, Beatrix wrote to me a few weeks after we met. That definition seemed perfect for the earrings I gave her: A composition of pearls that function as spheres, and gold plates that function as walls. A small labyrinth of reflections that, at a bigger scale, could be a sculpture.
