so i was minding my own business clicking through on a comment someone left here last week, and i made quite a serendipitous discovery – the beautiful world of portland artist catherine chandler! catherine makes the loveliest organic jewelry and objets from copper, sterling silver, titanium and semi precious stones. she engaged herself in many different types of artistry before she found her true medium, metal. since she is inspired by plant life, catherine created a series of rings that pay homage to a variety of endangered plants in a place where she studied her craft, australia. each piece’s vivid color represents the plant it is named after.
i love how her work is so elegant and spare, and how you can see the beautiful handmade quality throughout the whole well-designed collection.
