tres·tle-noun \ˈtre-səl also ˈtrə-\ Definition of trestle 1. a braced frame serving as a support.

In the summer of 2012, Natalie Macellaio and Lesli Robertson began to work together in the studio on a collaborative project called Trestle Designs. Lesli's son was 2 years old, and Natalie had twins, who were 6 months old. They both felt the pull of all aspects of our lives – the demands of motherhood, personal commitments, and their studio practice. They wanted to be in the company of each other, because there was a common ground and understanding as artists and mothers as they moved forward in our careers with their small children. As they began to work on Trestle Designs, the conversation continued to turn to sorting out their new lives, learning how to balance and adjust so that each element of their lives did not oppose the other--just like the materials used in their jewelry. Trestle Designs is a collaboration between two artists who have a need to create wonderful objects. They each bring our own medium into the collaboration to create beautiful, structurally inspired pieces to adorn the body made from materials that represent us--strong women.
