Inspired by where the city meets the sea, Cat McCadden transforms oceanic forms into an extension of her modern and sophisticated style. Wearing a piece of GRACE GOW jewelry feels like you are truly entwined with the spirit of the place that inspired it—the beach. Sandy dunes of the East coast or rocky scapes of the Pacific Northwest coast provide the original forms for the rings, necklaces and earrings that contain captivating and intricate details.
Cat McCadden's art practice draws inspiration from the natural environment, the sea, and coastal culture. In her work, she mixes traditional metal smith fabrication techniques, the lost wax casting process and an edgy eye for design with other traditional gemstone and jewelry references. The result is a hybrid contemporary style with textural motifs and lively depictions of oceanic forms.
