John and CharlotteGuptill
To escape the corporate frenzy, and to feed her "bead addiction," Charlotte Guptill began creating jewelry in 2002. She was inspired by her love of sailing to incorporate nautical charts into her designs in 2006. In 2009, with the assistance of her then fiance', John, Charlotte formally launched CHART Metalworks on Custom House Wharf, not far from their home on Portland, Maine's peninsula. Now, with the help of a talented pack of Maine-based artisans, and sometimes some distraction from their Corgi-Terrier Mix, Riley, husband and wife team John and Charlotte Guptill handcraft custom nautical chart and map adornments in their studio on Portland, Maine's working waterfront. Each unique piece is hand-cast. The chart or map images are hand cut and hand placed. Each piece is topped with a boaters resin creating a natural dome, magnifying the artwork below. collection
