Why Do I Make Sea Glass Jewelry?
My name is Caitlyn & I'm the owner and founder of Made By Caitlyn! I make jewelry so you can always wear a little piece of the sea close to your heart wherever you go!
Connecticut has a shoreline but I live nowhere close to the sea, instead I live in a small town, nestled in the woods of CT, surrounded by trees, nature and wildlife. I experience all 4 seasons, the warm days of summer, the beautiful leaves of fall, the cold temperatures of winter and the beautiful blooming flowers of spring.
Since I don't live close to the sea I wanted to create some kind of necklace so even though I live in the woods, or when I go to school or even when I'm hiking a mountain, I can now always wear a little piece of the sea close to my heart wherever I go.
So that's why I created this necklace, you don't have to live by the sea to enjoy or wear sea glass jewelry, wear this necklace wherever you live, wear it while at your 9-5, wear it while you're stuck inside on a rainy day, to your college dorm room, maybe you're in the city, at the lake or even in the mountains.
Wherever you are you can always wear your love for the ocean close to your heart. Wear it to remind you of your good memories when you're feeling down, or maybe you have a bad memory like the time a seagull pooped on you, I don't know but now you can think of that memory and either laugh or smile.
Are you stressed? Wear this necklace so you can imagine the sand between your toes, the wind in your hair, the smell of the sea, breathe in and out and listen to the waves, listen to the children laughing.
I also wanted to create a necklace inspired by the sea that wouldn't break your bank. I use cultured sea glass beads to mimic real sea glass but now I can create colorful jewelry and more affordable jewelry that more people can enjoy.
