Surrounded by majestic Southern Live Oaks, clouds of Crepe Myrtle trees, and waves of Sea Oats blowing in the wind, inspiration is everywhere. Specializing in one of a kind and small batch jewelry made from the flora of The South. Actual organics are electroformed in pure copper, preserving them forever. Cast pieces are produced in sterling silver and bronze from molds made DIRECTLY from the organics and not carved models.
Each piece is made by hand in Christopher's Savannah studio.
Jewelry by natural design.
A childlike fascination with mobiles and umbrella's lead to the formation of nuova forma. The pieces produced in this line are inspired and based upon mid century shapes and design. Much inspiration is drawn from the master for kinetic sculpture, Alexander Calder, each piece moves on its own, and there are no 'rings' involved. The pieces are cut, sanded and put together one at a time, and each piece is literally one of a kind.
Much inspiration is also drawn from mid century masters such as Art Smith, Betty Cooke, Ed Levin, and Pal Kepenyes to name a few. Much can be learned from those who come before us.
