Shaped by hand and finished with an eye-catching verdigris patina, these copper mango-leaf earrings are the creation of Trinidadian artist and jewelry maker Natasha Gill. Her handmade, artisan pieces come in gold, silver, bronze and copper, and are often embellished with crystals and raw gemstones.
From master ceramicist Homer Brown’s 3D Bumpy Head Vase Series comes the Gold and Green Spiky Head, made by hand with Jamaica’s Blue Mountain terracotta clay and finished in rich, metallic colors. A bold “bumpy head” woman adorns one side—deftly balanced by a cutwork design on the other.
For a picture of modern elegance with a distinct Old World aesthetic, the artisans at Crucian Gold crafted the one-of-a-kind Artful Array Chaney Bracelet using unique coin-shaped historic shards of china from St. Croix, skillfully set in rich 14k gold.
The beautifully handcrafted Sea Fan Platter from the Wild Flamingo Ceramic Line marries a sea life-inspired color palette with the textural complexity of Inagua’s rich and diverse landscape—simultaneously paying homage to the national bird of The Bahamas.
