"My jewelry designs are a playful reflection of nature's geometry; beauty that surrounds us everywhere, every day."
Since childhood, the dramatic landscape of coastal California has inspired Kathlenn Maley's lifestyle and aesthetic. Sweeping cliffs and tumbling waves, the linear horizon and curved coastline, textures and forms of rocks and seashells; these elements become the stylized lines and forms that give shape to Maley's work. Each piece of jewelry is made in her San Francisco studio by hand, with sterling silver and high karat gold or gold vermeil, using traditional metalsmithing techniques, and she tries to keep her sources and processes simple and sustainable. Maley continually challenges herself to create work that is fresh and unexpected, yet easy to wear for any occasion. She hopes these pieces will become the favorites in the your jewelry box!
