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 fiancé', 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 BRACELET:

The bracelet looks lovely and my wife is very happy with the appearance. It is somewhat difficult to clasp- yet unclasps very easily while on the wrist.This bracelet is copper and bends/loses shape easily.

Comments about CUSTOM MAP BRACELET:

I received this bracelet as an anniversary present. I loved the custom look to it. The map is of the location where my husband and I got engaged. It's a lovely bracelet, and I love the bronze metal! The map is of high quality, which is wonderful. I love the detail!

Unfortunately, I would not describe myself as having dainty wrists. I also had a baby 3 months ago. While this bracelet fits, it does not fit comfortably. I took it to my jeweler to see if they could perhaps stretch the metal to a larger size, but this is not possible because the material is too brittle. So I'm stuck with a beautiful piece of jewelry that is uncomfortable to wear!

I'm so sad and embarrassed that I can't wear this present from my husband! I love it and he was very proud of the find. I also can't return it or resize it. Maybe I'll pass it down to my infant daughter in 10 years. Until then, it will sit in my jewelry box... lonely and sad.

Comments about CUSTOM MAP BRACELET:

The quality of this bracelet is incredible! I was pleasantly surprised when I took it out of the box that it was even more gorgeous than it looked online. The only negative I have is that in order to clasp the bracelet you have to push on the band, and if you aren't very delicate, the metal will bend and the bracelet loses it's shape a bit. This changes the tension and therefore makes it harder for the bracelet to clasp properly.

    I bought this as a gift for my stepmother who is very hard to buy for. As soon as she opened the gift, she was delighted!! She said that she hasn't taken it off since I gave it to her at Christmas. It's perfect!
