These feature a famous Art Nouveau poster, originally printed between 1898 and 1901, for Absinthe Blanqui. The image was heavily influenced by the Victorian's love for Orientalism.

This pair of earrings are part of my new Absinthe Wear line and measure about 1 1/2 inches tall by 1 inch wide at the widest point, not including the ear wire.

Vintage images printed onto 110 lb. cardstock and laminated with surgical steel ear wires attached make extremely fun, unique earrings.

Earrings are incredibly lightweight yet durable.

Absinthe is commonly referred to in historical literature as "la fée verte" (the Green Fairy) due to its traditional natural green color.

It achieved great popularity as an alcoholic drink in late 19th- and early 20th-century France, particularly among Parisian artists and writers. Due in part to its association with bohemian culture, absinthe was opposed by social conservatives and prohibitionists. Charles Baudelaire, Paul Verlaine, Arthur Rimbaud, Vincent van Gogh, Oscar Wilde, and Aleister Crowley were all notorious bad men of that day who were (or were thought to be) devotees of the Green Fairy.

The listing is for the earrings only.
