Andy Warhol Jewelry

This past weekend, I did not indulge in fragrance at Bond No. 9, a New York perfumer. I was half tempted to buy a bottle of their Little Italy, a lovely candied orange scent, but then I saw the jewelry: Robert Lee Morris' Sterling baubles inspired by the works of Andy Warhol. So why is jewelry being sold at a perfume house? Because Bond has a line of scents done in conjunction with the Andy Warhol Foundation! Last Fall's release, Andy Warhol Silver Factory, is a gorgeous unisex amber, in a bottle decorated in the style of the iconic Campbell's soup label. This Spring's Union Square is a happy scent of bright floral notes, in a bottle bearing a version of Warhol's floral screen prints. (Is it me, or does anyone else remember that a version of this print hung by the front door on TV's Bewitched?)

Here are the earrings I bought, the "blurry flowers." They are 1 1/2" in diameter, and engraved on the back with the Warhol quote, "All is pretty." Cute, huh?

If you can't make it to Bond to pick up your own Robert Lee Morris jewelry, it's available on his Web site, along with other great styles (the Warhol jewelry is also available in 18K gold as the "Factory X" collection.
