About Char Maassen
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.
