Locavore: Rock out with a bold concrete necklace

By Bree Coven Brown / Special to Sunday Market

GoldCubeNecklace_600_0608Think hard about your jewelry. Really hard.

Maple + Mauve’s necklaces are small geometric shapes hand-cast in concrete. Sera Young makes the bold pieces in her studio in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood, inspired by her previous job as a designer at an architecture firm.

The concrete pieces are sanded and sealed, and then suspended from delicate chains in gunmetal- or gold-plated brass. The result is edgy, sophisticated and memorable.

Necklaces $44–$86 at mapleandmauve.com and Venue (Ballard)
