Crafted from sustainable and recycled materials, Cat’s handmade wares combine two of her passions—saving the planet and drinking wine. Rather than tossing the cork from each bottle, Cat began saving them, starting with the first bottle she and her husband shared in their new home. That first cork led to quite the stockpile, with corks filling every nook and cranny—and so she began transforming them into wearable art. She cuts the unique material into pendants and domed charms, embellishes them with vintage-inspired imagery and finishes each with industrial hardware. Cat soon worked through the cork hoard, and now she sources the natural material from Portugal, where the cork is sustainably harvested, as well as local bars and wine-drinking friends.
