Ay Ay, Cap'n!

Heavy and substantial, these nautical necklaces by artist Matthew Moerman have both physical presence and strong symbolic meaning. The bronze anchor (available in two lengths) is a reminder of strength, loyalty and staying grounded even in the stormiest of weather. The sterling silver and bronze compass symbolizes adventure, life's unpredictable journeys and is a reminder to never lose your way along the way. It is engraved with the words Consilio Et Animis, Latin for "By Wisdom and Courage."

Hand cast in sterling silver and bronze from reclaimed objects, these antique-looking pieces are tied to the past and have an air of history and mystery about them. And just like their real-life counterparts, these nautical pieces are prepared for the unpredictable, turbulent and beautiful journey of life. Handmade in California. Sold individually.

Matthew Moerman

Artist Matthew Moerman uses reclaimed materials to create an acute connection to the past. Combining mechanical elements with historic and symbolic imagery his creative process shapes new objects with reverence to the past lives of the materials.

Original pieces are handcrafted using traditional metal smithing techniques and incorporating reclaimed materials. For production purposes these pieces are cast in sterling silver and bronze.

"I strive to evoke a feeling of history by creating rich and interesting conversation pieces that are as stylish as they are unique," Moerman says.
