meet the clip links.

towards the end of last year, i found myself making chains in various forms and formations. thinking all the while how connected i am to my work. that is to say, i operate in one mode and that is “caroline mode”. i approach my job in the same fashion that i approach my every day: […]

meet the pacem medals.

pacem is the Latin word for peace. while i don’t know much Latin, i do know a little bit about peace. i know that it’s necessary for a good night’s sleep. i know that it keeps blood-pressure down and sweaty hands dry. i know that it helps the mind think clearly and the heart beat […]

the post holiday hibernation and an interview.

the holidays came on full force and then simply evaporated before i even knew what was happening. i was left pooped but happy. luke and i hosted my family for christmas this year. it was the punctuation at the end of all my shows, online orders, and boutique re-ups. i’d say it was a pretty […]

the overlap series.

we all overlap. in one way or another. sometimes it’s obvious and sometimes it isn’t. i’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. the overlapping of lives. call it the social or political climate these days or chalk it up to the very simple fact that i spend most of my days alone in my […]

flight necklaces

it’s migration season once again and i’m smitten. seeing those birds in flight always make me think, “alright, what’s next?” they almost seem to remind me to turn the page, hunker down, and prepare for the big chill. winter. not in a dreadful, nervous way, but in a reflective, ambitious way. this is when i […]

at some point one thing turns into another

it’s bound to happen, right? you have an idea and it’s great, so you start to make it a reality. but in that process you have another idea, similar but not the same. maybe even better than the first or maybe it’s just the fact that it’s slightly different that makes you wonder. or let’s […]

two more vintage clothespin necklaces.

now i’m nostalgic. these little wooden objects tucked me into a time machine and whisked me not so far but away. i’m thinking of summer. i’m thinking of sunshine and clean sheets. i’m thinking about the real “fresh scent”, you know what i mean? i’m thinking of working hands, stiff socks, and sweet-smelling grass. i’m […]

a new take on an original design.

my little birds on a wire drawings have been around for awhile. since the beginning, really. and i’ve yet to get sick of them, though i know a day will come when their ship will sail off into the horizon of fully fleshed-out artworks. so until that day comes, i will continue to make these […]

guest instagramming: ok, i’ll try it.

my husband, luke, has always been my computer guy. my krang-brain of modern technologies. he helped me buy my first computer at the ripe age of 26. two years ago he talked me into getting an ipad. naturally, i didn’t want one, but finally conceded when he told me i could have sudoku and weather.com […]

the feather fletching series.

meet the feather fletching series, born of arrows and a little lack of direction. i should start off by making a confession. i began this series because i was a little lost and a lot bit stuck. that’s the honest truth. i felt like i’d hit a wall and slid right down into a heap […]
