The Cast Natural: Grain Collection is a series of jewelry produced by a small design studio in Santa Barbara, California called fitzgerald forbes. The husband and wife team developed this collection by deconstructing reclaimed plywood and turning the material inside out. The laminated inner layers of the plywood produce the rough textures on the final product giving them an organic and unique quality.
The duo creates the prototypes and then has each piece cast in Rhode Island, with all of the finishing work done by hand in their studio. The collection is made up of cuff bracelets in two sizes, stacking rings, and necklaces made in either solid brass or solid bronze.
