Locavore: Grown-up jewelry celebrates childhood

By Bree Coven Brown / Special to Sunday Market

web-goldfishAdd an accessory that’s at once familiar and completely unexpected with a Common Object Jewelry piece by Seattle artist Julie Charles.

The line casts childhood icons such as toy jacks, gummy bears, building blocks, Goldfish crackers and Barbie shoes in sterling silver to create necklaces, earrings, pins and tie tacks.

The result is a hip dose of wearable nostalgia for people who don’t take themselves — or their accessories — too seriously.

$36–$88 at commonobjectjewelry.com and Venue, Ballard
