In Full Foliage
Kathleen Dautel is an award-winning architect and metalsmith, but her inspiration doesn't come from the rigid lines of buildings and metals. Instead, she calls on nature with its unpredictable patterns and innumerable colors to craft one-of-a-kind jewelry. In the case of her open leaf earrings, the rustling leaves outside her North Carolina home play the muse. Laser-cut from stainless steel and cast in resin, her unique design frames your face in stunning detail. Handmade in Raleigh, North Carolina.
