    The Object of Desire: Schiaparelli's Bursting Eye

    In the realm of art and fashion, certain objects transcend their physical form, becoming vessels of fascination and enchantment. These are the Objects of Desire - imbued with profound significance and radiating an otherworldly energy charged by artistic magnetism and creative transformative powers. Among the treasures discovered within the dazzling jewelry collection of Schiaparelli, three enigmatic pieces stand as beacons of mystique: The Bursting Eye Brooch, The Surrealist Eye Chandelier Earrings, and The Bursting Eye Ring.

    Crafted from gilded brass, the Bursting Eye Brooch is a testament to Elsa Schiaparelli's unyielding spirit and her fascination with Surrealism. At its core lies a Surrealist Eye - a symbol of wisdom and perception, entwined with a golden cookie-dough textured frame, and adorned with a crystal burst. Long crystal and pearl charmed bars cascade from its base, adding a touch of ethereal grace. This brooch is more than just an accessory; it encapsulates a journey into the realm of the surreal, inviting admirers to explore the depths of its creative energy.

    Enchanting the senses with their celestial allure, The Surrealist Eye Chandelier Earrings, crafted from gilded brass, evoke an enchanting dance of ethereal charms. Two Surrealist Eyes, embraced by golden cookie-dough textured frames, become a portal to another realm. Crystal and pearl charmed bars cascade gracefully from each side, like sparkling teardrops of magic. As they sway with the wearer's movements, these earrings weave a spellbinding tale of allure and fascination.

    Among the magical offerings, The Bursting Eye Ring emerges as a captivating marvel. Fashioned from gilded brass, it echoes the profound connection between anatomy and surrealism - a signature fascination of Schiaparelli herself. A Surrealist Eye with a golden cookie-dough textured frame is encased within a bursting crystal formation, capturing the essence of metamorphosis and creative energy in a single ring. On the finger, it becomes a talisman, imbuing the wearer with a sense of wonder and connection to the realms of imagination.

    It is in the all-seeing eye that we find a source of magical magnetism and transformative powers. The symbol of the eye transcends cultures and epochs, representing an innate connection to the mysteries of the universe. Within these objects, the eye takes on a life of its own, radiating an energy that transcends the boundaries of time and space. This energy binds the wearer to the mystical essence of the universe, empowering them to embrace their creative potential and embark on transformative journeys of self-discovery.

    In 2019, Daniel Roseberry stepped into the realm of Schiaparelli, wielding his creative wand with masterful finesse. Embracing the beloved codes and iconography of the Maison while paying homage to Elsa Schiaparelli's love for Surrealism, Roseberry breathes new life into the House's enchanting legacy. With his deft use of gold jewelry and innovative aesthetic vocabulary, he weaves a tapestry of contemporary magic, sparking a new era of artistic expression.

    In the alchemy of artistry, the Objects of Desire within Schiaparelli's jewelry collection become vessels of enchantment. They invite us to step into the realm of the surreal, where creativity knows no bounds and magical magnetism reigns supreme. Each piece bears witness to the legacy of Schiaparelli while transcending the constraints of time and space. As we delve into the captivating world of these objects, we discover the essence of art's transformative powers, forever charmed by their spellbinding allure.
