Portland Oregon is home to some of the most beautiful bridges in the world. From the gothic style of the St. Johns Bridge to Tilikum Crossing, our new contemporary cable-stayed bridge, Portland is famous for our many bridges with a variety architectural styles & shapes.
Aptly named bridgetown, crossing over at least one bridge is a daily routine for many Oregonians. Whether you bike over the Hawthorne or skateboard under the Burnside, when in Portland, you most definitely feel a connection with the Willamette River.
Breathtaking views of Mount Hood are seen throughout the city, demanding Portlanders to pause and take note of our beautiful environment.
This jewelry series is a tribute to Portland and an homage to Oregon. Beginning as only a sketchbook sketch, these pendants were drawn on location, in view of their expansive inspiration. This series was created by Melissa Moline, Oregonian and lead designer at Allusa Architecture, a small Portland firm.
