Engraved with Andy Warhol's signature, this brass bracelet, made by Robert Lee Morris, the prolific jeweler, sculptor, and friend of Warhol exemplifies the essence of jewelry: the luxurious intersection of art and life. This one-size fits all, vintage wide brass bracelet was designed by Robert Lee Morris with the authority of the Andy Warhol Foundation, bearing Andy Warhol's incised signature. It features cutout stars and moons, and is held in the original vintage gift box with 'romance' card. The Robert Lee Morris 'Celestial' collection was originally mass marketed through QVC, which sold out of them. They are now considered collectors items - and sell at art auctions under the category "wearable masterpieces". This bracelet comes in the original box with card and pouch. Very rarely found all together!!!
"The Andy Warhol Celestial Collection is all based on the symbols Andy drew of the sky and heavens — stars, cherubs, moons, and flying creatures like birds and insects. I've taken great liberty to design necklaces, earrings, and a bangle using the pierced technique in order to achieve the lighthearted and whimsical essence of the celestial jewelry."
—Robert Lee Morris

Signature: Inside bears stamped Warhol signature and incised copyright and stamp of the Andy Warhol Foundation which licensed Warhol's name and rights to design the collection to Robert Lee Morris.

About Andy Warhol

Obsessed with celebrity, consumer culture, and mechanical (re)production, Pop artist Andy Warhol created some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. As famous for his quips as for his art—he variously mused that “art is what you can get away with” and “everyone will be famous for 15 minutes”—Warhol drew widely from popular culture and everyday subject matter, creating works like his 32 Campbell's Soup Cans (1962), Brillo pad box sculptures, and portraits of Marilyn Monroe, using the medium of silk-screen printmaking to achieve his characteristic hard edges and flat areas of color. Known for his cultivation of celebrity, Factory studio (a radical social and creative melting pot), and avant-garde films like Chelsea Girls (1966), Warhol was also a mentor to artists like Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. His Pop sensibility is now standard practice, taken up by major contemporary artists Richard Prince, Takashi Murakami, and Jeff Koons, among countless others.
