We are so pleased to be able to offer lovely Kata Golda Earrings from our Port Townsend neighbor. They hand cast their designs with sterling ear wires. They come with a handsewn hemp muslin pouch that includes a clever polishing cloth. In addition, they wrap the pouch with a silk ribbon and tagged. A beautiful gift!
Strong, decorative, durable and natural – this is jewelry you can wear every day.
Kata Golda Earrings are cast by hand out of recycled metal. The organic shapes found in nature inspire each charm. The form, variation, feel and energy of each piece is intentionally raw and imperfect. The patina will change with time and wear. However, you can always restore it to its original shine if that suits your style.
Yellow bronze charms hang from sterling silver ear wire. A clear plastic ear nut on the back secures it.
FROM ALISON KAPLAN OF KATA GOLDA:
Nestled snugly in the small, mossy seaside town of Port Townsend, WA is my studio and the home of Kata Golda. I find my inspiration in the natural world. So I try to begin each day with a walk in the woods or time digging in the garden. By midmorning my mind is fresh and full of ideas and I’m ready to spend the day creating. I have a hard time sitting still. The flow of my day shifts between the repetitive production of filling orders, scheming and sketching new ideas for the line, and stitching something simply for pleasure. This rhythm is punctuated by domestic arts as I love cooking, mending and keeping a tidy and organized space. I use these rituals as a way to clear my head, structure my day, and focus my craft.
Kata Golda has grown into a flourishing business with the help of many skilled artisans living on the West Coast of the United States. Kata Golda strives to pay living wages and preserve crafts such as needlework, letterpress printing, hand-thrown pottery, hand-dyed textiles, felting and bookbinding. We carefully select environmentally friendly materials and use up every little scrap of fabric. Kata Golda strives to produce zero waste and have the lowest impact on our planet as possible.
