HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!
Wishing you all a prosperous 2017, filled with much love, happiness & success. Let's continue to fight for what we love & believe in this new year. The opportunities are endless!
I couldn't be more excited to see all that unravels for Cadette throughout this new year. And it begins with the release of two new pieces! For 2017, I aim to create a journal entry whenever a new piece is introduced into the line. I love having the opportunity to explain the general inspiration behind a design, with accompanying visuals that can put the final piece in context.
This entry will speak specifically to the new Kamea earrings.
Being heavily influenced by artists who capture the beauty of irregular, imperfect, a-symmetrical forms, Arp, Matisse, Kelly - I wanted to create a new pair of statement earrings with a similar sentiment.
It was my cousin who suggested the name Kamea. In Hawaiian, it means: one and only, or one-of-a-kind. So suitable in this case, as each earring is created unique. I form each of the Kamea earrings by hand, mimicking the same general size & concept for each, so that they resemble each other enough to be a pair, however, no two will be the exact same. It's this beautiful irregularity that I've always been drawn to, and believe makes a piece much more memorable.
With this first launch, I'm offering them specifically in brass, polished to a high shine. These beauties are eye-catching enough to create a statement when worn, but still have a lightness them, so they can easily be worn from day to night. Now available in the shop!
