John and Charlotte Guptill
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

Comments about CUSTOM MAP CHARM BRACELET:
I purchased this bracelet as gift for my sister, she is moving out of state! The map charm is a unique way to remind her of her beloved state/family when she becomes homesick. The silver links are beautiful, however the clasp does not fully close, there is a slight gap that could possibly catch on sweater.The detail of map is pretty accurate, however I am disappointed in the clarity of lettering (highway, county, streets) I wish the script were more clear/legible. It is a very casual everyday piece. The links could accommodate other charms, however that may take away from the unique point of the map charm, therefore just another common charm bracelet. It is a little overpriced yet the unexpected uniqueness justifies the purchase.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was prompt! I was very surprised at how quickly it arrived considering that the charm is semi-customized to individual locations chosen.
