Clouds and Ladders jewelry is designed and made by hand by Kate Joseph in her solar-powered studio in a redwood forest north of San Francisco. Each hand-soldered brass frame is inlaid with colorful patterns that make Clouds & Ladders so unique. Her love of the history of craft and design informs her designs.
