A shell was collected, then a few more, the salty smell of ocean stayed long after. A shape emerged, forming the Crusta cuff by Takara. Inspired by sea life, cast with a gold plated finish. Measures 2.5" diameter
Takara is a meditative process exploring sculptural design and primitive form. Each piece is designed to contain and capture narrative within it's shape. The artist behind Takara is Jen Goff, a West Coast native. Her travels have led her all across the world, where she has worked on farms and gardens, shot rolls of film, bypassed fancy education, studied medicinal herbs, walked hundreds of miles, sat silent in meditation and finally settled down to make jewelry. Jens working process is intuitive and expresses a desire to connect beauty with everyday life through objects of personal adornment.
