Grace Gow is an independent fine jewelry company based in Seattle, inspired by where the city meets the sea. Since 2007, designer Cat McCadden has been transforming oceanic forms into wearable sculptural pieces in gold, silver, bronze and brass accented with topaz, tourmalines and diamonds. Her work conjures the spirit of the place that inspired it—the beach. Spending summers from a young age on the Jersey Shore and the North Fork of Long Island and now living on Vashon Island in the Puget Sound, Cat walks the beach for searching for crab claws and shell fragments that wash ashore. The original forms from the line were collected on either the wide sand beaches of the East Coast or the rocky seascapes of the Pacific Northwest coastline.
“The feeling I strive to create for my customers is a ‘it’s summer somewhere’sensibility, one that will make them feel both free and strong the moment they put on my jewelry, no matter what they’re wearing.”
Handcrafted on Vashon Island, GRACE GOW’s unisex fine jewelry and wedding rings in gold, rose gold, platinum, silver and bronze are available through www.gracegow.com and at select retailers. They are committed to eco-efficient choices, conscious studio practices and use recycled metals and ethically sourced gemstones whenever possible.
GRACE GOW is the name of the designer’s maternal grandmother. A Scottish émigré who called New York City home for over 60 years, Grace embodied intelligence, creativity and a naturally sophisticated beauty.
