About Soft Corner ///
Soft Corner is a line of modern accessories, made by hand on small island Maine. Their pieces are practical statements—ultra-light and easy to wear thanks to lightweight clay and findings--inspired by design movements, color, the ambiguously femme, and the world we see everyday outside our door. Their designs are simple, clean, and modern.
Soft Corner is a one-person brand--run by self-taught maker, Katie Tiehen. Other than always having her hands in clay, Katie is also a florist, amateur flower farmer, and outdoor lover. Based within Acadia National Park in Maine, she does her best to take advantage of every opportunity for a swim, hike, ski, and ocean adventure. Soft Corner is her first full-time creative venture, after spending over a decade working in the nonprofit and corporate creative sectors.
Jewelry is made from polymer clay and resin--and always made using sterling-or gold-filled findings at any point that touches the ear.
