Simon Harrison - Tamara Enamel Drop Earrings Green

An era shaped by the desire for speed, motion and mechanization, the 1920s became synonymous with the Art Deco style. Its influence can be seen in architecture, design, fashion and visual arts. Tamara de Lempicka pioneered the style in portraiture, fusing art, fashion and luxury, establishing herself as the art world's first glamour star. A true female entrepreneur, building up a global network of patrons from Paris to Hollywood. She saw in her long life the wheel of fashion turn full circle. Costume jewellery is fragile so protect it from knocks, chemicals, extreme temperatures and sunlight, and it'll look fabulous for years to come. Don't wear your jewellery while bathing and showering, (or swimming, jacuzzis, saunas or steam rooms) as moisture can cause tarnishing and weaken springs and clasps. With that in mind if you do get your jewellery wet be sure to dry it thoroughly. Chlorine, detergents, oils, make-up, hair spray and perfumes can all tarnish and generally damage your jewellery. Make sure to put it on last as the finishing touch to your outfit. After wearing your jewellery it's best to clean it with a soft cloth before putting it away in its protective pouch - this will remove any make-up and other oils it may have picked up. Finally when putting your chains away try to coil chains gently so as to prevent any damage in storage.
