I found Kate Barazzuol’s display of exquisite metalwork at the Granville Public Market a couple of months ago. Touching the pieces, it felt as though the metal had a life of its own. She is a master at capturing the elegant fine details of an unfurled sprig of moss, ripples in sand, flower petals…each piece has a graceful and authentic beauty.
I just had to make Quench Designs the first jewelry feature, because one of these pieces will be my gift to myself (I am a big fan of self gifts) upon completion of my thesis. Haven’t decided which one yet, though.
