About Aquatica Jewelry
U.S. Made Stainless Steel Jewelry by Designer Charles P. Bahringer
ABOUT THE DESIGNER:
Charles P. Bahringer is an American born, award winning contemporary metals jewelry designer. Originally an Architecture major in college at the University of Wisconsin, Charles changed direction after he took just a few jewelry design classes. "I went to college with the idea that I would become an architect but wanted to take some jewelry making classes so I could make my own wedding rings if I ever got married someday." states Charles. "I took a few classes and was good at it and I liked it so I eventually changed over to Metalsmithing and Jewelry design."
After college Charles owned and operated his own custom fine jewelry store for thirteen years before being introduced to contemporary metals, winning multiple international alternative metal jewelry competitions. Since then he has worked in titanium, stainless steel and other contemporary metals. Charles has designed product for companies such as Marc Ecko, Calvin Klein, Dockers, Tommy Bahama, SHAQ, NASCAR, NFL, Express and the World Series of Poker winner bracelet.
Charles P. Bahringer collection's are groups of work that are constantly changing. "I am always looking forward, my designs are constantly evolving" says Charles. His recent work is his Aquatica Jewels series of sculpted aquatic figures in stainless steel with transparent gem enamels. Ever since moving to South Florida Charles has been enamored with the beauty and the fury of the sea. “My inspiration comes to me when my daughter Sara and I are walking along the beach. The sky, the sand and the water all have something to say. The energy of the sea is amazing!”
