CHAR MAASSEN JEWELRY DESIGN

Char’s jewelry design is inspired by her years working in architecture and design. She is drawn to the colors and materials found in nature. Her pieces are all hand-crafted and her gemstones are all personally selected in order to ensure the best quality and effect.

She works primarily with semi-precious gems and a variety of metals such as fine silver, sterling silver, gold, vermeil and copper. Her collections include necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Many of the necklaces are designed to be worn alone or grouped together, enabling one to create their own unique look and to build onto their own collection over time.

Char has been in the world of design for more than 25 years. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and golden retriever in a hillside home overlooking the Bay. From her studio, she is able to enjoy the very nature that inspires her.


LIQUID METAL JEWELRY

Liquid metal jewelry by Colombian artist, Sergio Gutierrez, is now being featured at the Butter Paddle. Sergio moved to San Francisco in 1971 where he began researching ways of using ball chain to create a mesh like fabric. After two years, he developed what is now the basis of his “Liquid Metal Mesh” jewelry and accessory line.  Designer Betsy Johnson was the first to approach Sergio about creating exclusive designs for her chain of retail stores.  He decided to relocate to Miami and then came companies such as Nordstrom, Babe and, Cache.  He developed techniques for incorporating his “Liquid Metal Mesh” with leather bags, bracelets, belts and jackets along with blue jean pants and skirts.


In 2003, he was granted a patent for creating a unique technique he has named, “Liquid Microchips”, electronic circuitry components have been altered to resemble the most delicate, intricate decorative elements. Sergio fondly refers to them as the “skeletons of today's inside technology”. These “skeletons” are incorporated into his mesh, objects collection and leather items.


His designs are collected and worn by celebrities such as Demi Moore, Cher, Marilyn Manson, Sara Michelle Gellar, Tony Braxton, Sharon Stone, Tyra Banks and many more.  Clients who wear his jewelry and accessories daily, as if they were extension of themselves, value the comfort and uniqueness of the wonderful mesh designs Sergio has created.
