MoMA Exclusive: In Japanese, “bubun” means “section” and in the case of these Bubun Earrings, it refers to the segments of glass beads that compose these striking pieces. Handmade in Japan, the earrings evoke vertebrae with their articulated movement. Each section of borosilicate glass is hand-cut and grooved, then knit together using tiny, ultra-strong threads.
The delicate 18k yellow gold posts can be repositioned at any point on the earrings to change up your look - wear them as elegant drops, or a contemporary ear climber. With their graduated beads in an elegant drop, these 2.18”l Bubun Earrings lend an edge of minimalist luxury to any ensemble.
