Ma(i)sonry Napa Valley
6711 Washington Street, Yountville, CA
Come say hello, view the new additions to my eco-luxury jewelry collection, relax and sample a curated selection of artisan wines from Ma(i)sonry's vintner partners.New Pendant Series
I'm always inspired by my materials, so I love having a large selection of stones and objects laid out on a big wooden table in my studio. I can see the table's surface from my bench, from the soldering station and from the polisher, so as I work, I can view the stones from different angles, in various lights. Throughout the day I'll go to the table and play - grouping, pairing, arranging and rearranging... until something clicks and a new piece is revealed.
Inspired by the various "studies" I was arranging on my table, this new series of pendants captures both subtle variations and bold juxtapositions of color and pattern. The vintage gunmetal chain is a lovely shade of slate/black, the perfect way to display the pendants. They can be paired and worn in multiple configurations. Have fun playing! Pendants range from $125 - $300.New Ring Series
I'll also be presenting a new selection of one of a kind rings, bracelets, cuff links and earrings from $400 - $600. The cast collection will include rings, cuff links and new pendants from $125 - $225.
A little history about Ma(i)sonry
Ma(i)sonry Napa Valley represents "a life aesthetic." Founded by Michael Polenske, proprietor of the acclaimed Blackbird Vineyards, Ma(i)sonry Napa Valley inhabits a beautifully restored, 104-year-old private stone residence in Yountville, California. One of only two buildings in Yountville listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Ma(i)sonry Napa Valley is no ordinary art gallery or wine tasting venue, but a destination in its own right. As a living gallery, guests can enjoy or acquire art and furnishings that encompass works from 16th-century European craftsmen to contemporary artists and designers, all while savoring artisan wines. “We wanted to create a destination where wine and art came together in a way that would enhance our guests’ enjoyment of both,” Polenske says. “Ma(i)sonry is in every way a celebration of life’s aesthetics. Every collection on site has been created by the hand of an artist, artisan, or designer, and, of course, that includes the wine.”
I'm so pleased to be the featured jewelry designer at Ma(i)sonry's April 25th Sunday Salon event.Please RSVP to my trunk show here:
