Cathy Waterman's Jewelry for Snow White and the Huntsman

By on Sunday, June 10, 2012 9 Comments

Planning to see the latest movie Snow White and the Huntsman?  The special effects, the medieval style and a cool retelling of the fairy tale all combine to make it a spectacular feast for the eyes.


Colleen Atwood, the renowned costume designer picked Cathy Waterman  to create the special pieces for the movie worn by  the evil Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) ,Snow White (Kristen Stewart), her mother (Liberty Ross) and other characters.



The choice of designer was deliberate and inspired because Cathy's exquisite style was perfect for the look of the movie.  Cathy said in an interview, "Colleen saw some of my work and recognized that it embodies the beauty of both the dark and the light side of the story — and of one’s own nature." The collaboration developed into a friendship.

She does strive for something new and spectacular by putting in considerable effort to get the design right. For example, the Falling Leaves necklace the evil queen wears in the Mirror, Mirror on the wall scene took her 100 hours.

Indeed, the jewelry for this complicated character were all "double-edged" and symbolic.  Cathy explains, "The lace necklace she wears in her wedding scene is a cage, from which none of them will be able to escape unscathed." In sharp contrast, the jewelry for Snow White is simple yet bold. The jewelry worn by Snow White's mother  is just plain stunning.

Her inspiration comes from studying history and travelling.

  7. Love the jewelry! Beautiful work! I wanted to point out though, that the bracelet for Snow White's mother isn't petrified wood-it's corral.. Just to be correct. :)

  8. No, this is not coral which aren't structured like this. But I wonder if it might be really fossil stone. But the source article (Paris Vogue) interviewed the designer and labelled it as petrified wood.
