John and Charlotte Guptill

Charlotte Guptill was inspired by her love of sailing to incorporate nautical charts into her designs in 2006. In 2009, with the assistance of her then fiancÚ', 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, the husband and wife team 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

    Comments about CUSTOM MAP PENDANT:

    The workmanship is wonderful. The pendant is heavy, suggesting durability. The map is a good size for recognizing the locale. The chain measures 18 inches, but perhaps an option for a longer chain could be available.

    Comments about CUSTOM MAP PENDANT:

    The pendant is simple but beautiful and heavy which tells me that it's durable. However, the chain is too short. I'll need to purchase a separate chain for my wife's comfort. That's not cool. Hopefully the artist will read this and provide longer chains in the future. I would still recommend this product, but the buyer should read this too.

      The sterling silver pendent with a colorful map of a RI beach on one side, represents the place where my wife & I met for the very first time. The date was 1963, and this gift was so creative, well made, and absolutely suitable for such a sentimental rememberance. We love it! SMS

          i had been eyeing this necklace for a long time and am so happy that i finally decided to buy it. i really like the colors. the land on mine is pink and the water is a pretty blue. i choose our wedding site for the location and can easily see the detail in the pendant. it's substantial enough to not flip. i wish the necklace were a bit shorter, but i can easily change that. i'm beyond happy with this purchase!

            The idea of a location- specific chart was particularly appropriate for my daughter's birthday. She and grandkids all live in Australia with Aussie hubby but she grew-up here near Annapolis, Md. at the confluence of Whitehall and Ridout Creeks. Thrilled with the pendant that shows her US home, she has worn it daily.

              Great, high quality product!

              Service and delivery comments:

              The ordering process was EXTREMELY frustrating.... I sent the image back for modifications (because my image instructions were ignored). I literally had emails from 7 or 8 different people during the confusing ordering process. I received an email advising me the pendant had shipped, then i got a phone call advising me I had not approved the image. I was sent another email confirmation for someone else's order! VERY CONFUSING!!! phone support was very friendly, but still frustrating. When it was all said and done, the pendant was awesome. Was worth the hassle..... Ordered two other items; those transactions went smoothly! Great products!

                  I'm pretty disappointed. It was a sentimental gift for myself and I can't even see it. I have wanted it for a long time and now I'm sorry I got it. Because of the custom nature of the necklace I don't think I can return it.

                        I got this as a gift for a friend for christmas, she recently got engaged in St.Barts and so I had a map of the Island made for her, she LOVED it! I think it was the perfect gift, it came out perfectly lovely and arrived on time, I highly recommend this as a thoughtful, sentimental gift! : )

                        These products from Chart Metal works are splendid. They are great quality, unigue designs and so personal. You will be hard pressed to find a more personal gift than one of these. Pick your place on the map and these amazing designers will make your piece to order!! You can't go wrong!
