These earrings are inspired by the art of Jean-Michel Basquiat.  The crown was his signature motif.  In some paintings, the crowns top nameless, generic figures; but more often, they crowned his heros.  These included renowned jazz muscians and celebrated athletes.  Like the royal titles that famous African American musicians have sometimes adopted as nicknames - such as Duke Ellington or Count Basie - Basquiat used crowns to ennoble his icons.

Finish:  Solid brass, electro-plated with hematite finish, ear wires are plated hematite.

Dimensions:  Hangs approximately 1.75 inches.
