Somewhere between her desperate search for ways to distinguish her school uniform and being surrounded by the trade tools of an interior designing mother, Cara developed a keen eye and a constant yearning for creating beautiful objects that bring the new and the old together. Though always aligned with current fashions, her creations bring a type of depth, warmth and texture reminiscent of antique fabrics and rugs.
After graduating from Vanderbilt University, Cara and a partner began making Christmas ornaments out of antique jewelry and beads procured from estate sales. Their jeweled balls found their way into local boutiques in Fort Worth, TX and were eventually distributed by Neiman Marcus.
Eighteen years later, after raising three children in her 18th century, New Jersey farmhouse, Cara has introduced a new line of necklaces that are entirely rooted in her history. Each piece is handcrafted, combining unique found objects and semi-precious or antique beads to create one-of-a-kind works of art that are to be worn and distinguish their owner in their “everyday uniform.”
