Goldengrove By Margaret Cross is a collection of Fine Modern Morning, Memento Mori, and Sentimental Jewelry, handmade in our Brooklyn studio using 100% recycled metals and ethically sourced stones. After graduating from Pratt Institute in 2007 and suffering a great personal tragedy Margaret Cross found the need to create pieces heavily inspired by her experience. Finding herself learning to navigate life after profound loss, the sudden death of her best friend, she found a deep affinity to mourning jewelry and its connection to others coping with death and grief. Drawing from her background in printmaking, each piece is meticulously made by hand and sculptural, celebrating it's irregularities unique to its wearer.
The name Goldengrove comes from the 1918 Gerard Hopkins poem Spring and Fall
