Cathy Waterman's fairy tale at White Bird

Los Angeles-based designer Cathy Waterman creates about fifty unique pieces for a select few boutiques around the world each year. White Bird is her sole representative in Europe. Waterman is passionate about the Middle Ages and draws in her work on naturalistic motifs such as oak leaves, laurel leaves and bramble leaves. The chiseled openwork gold on the frames conjures up dewdrops or tears, while the subtle blend of very warm (almost pure) 22-carat gold or oxidized gold with luminous white platinum imbues her pieces with an emotive beauty.
