John and Charlotte Guptill

Inspired by her love of sailing, Maine-based maker Charlotte Guptill began to incorporate nautical charts directly into her jewelry designs. With the help of her husband, John, and a talented pack of Maine artisans, she handcrafts custom nautical chart and map adornments in her studio on the Portland waterfront. Each of her pieces is hand-cast, the chart or map images are hand cut, and each piece is topped with boaters resin to create a natural dome that magnifies the artwork below.
