Architectural Jewelry Created by Silversmith Adorns any Décor with Eco-Friendly Metal
Silversmith’s handmade decorative metal offers endless possibilities for any décor with styles from modern to rustic.
“I used to design jewelry in silver and gold to decorate the human form. Now I design in many metals to decorate architecture. I am very excited to bring these eco-friendly metal tiles and backsplashes to the marketplace. With 3 distinct lines, from textures to patinas, there are 100’s of choices to fit any style.” says Catherine Arms Gammel, metalsmith and owner of Blue Feather Metals.
Some of the techniques used by Blue Feather Metals to make their backsplashes, tiles and more are as ancient as working metal itself, while others are cutting edge. They present 3 distinct collections in their online store. The Texture Collection brings the crisp clean feel of pure metal, in either simple or complex textures for a touch of elegance. The Patina Collection lends a pop of color with 16 unique patinas on copper, brass and cold-rolled steel.

Custom artwork is also available for company logos, signs, as well as tiles and backsplashes.
