PRODUCT STORY
Caitlin says: I live, work and make jewelry in New York City, but my roots are in the leafy green Pacific Northwest. My husband and I love our location in Brooklyn because Prospect Park is our life raft in the city. We walk there when we crave fresh air and perspective. I often gather things there to make jewelry, and I especially favor pieces that have fallen to the ground. I like these because their "living" is done, but they have a second life in my jewelry; this is the case for the three twigs that I found to make these rings. I love casting nature into silver, the contrast between the organic and fleeting against the designed creation and its permanence. This piece in particular seems to join those two worlds. The rings are lightweight yet bold, and meant to be together, as the twigs were when part of the same tree. I do minimal finishing work to this piece so the natural texture can shine.

Caitlin's jewelry are simple but beautiful. For those who love conservative jewelry - it is a must. She also can make silver jewelry to request. What a "gem".

These are cute, but very commercial looking. Nice, but not unique or "uncommon"
