About Made By Caitlyn
Hi! I'm Caitlyn!!
My name is Caitlyn & I'm the owner and founder of Made By Caitlyn! If you’re anything like me you absolutely love the sea. However, sadly I cannot go to the beach very often. While Connecticut has a shoreline, I live nowhere close to the sea. 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 I can now always wear a little piece of the sea close to my heart wherever I go!!!
I wanted to be able to carry my happy memories at the beach with me at all times!
I make jewelry so you can always wear a little piece of the sea close to your heart wherever you go! So when I'm feeling down I can wear my sea glass necklace to remind me of all my beach memories. I love how the colors that I use captures the beauty and essence of the beach! I love going to the beach for its beauty, its ocean treasures and the tranquility and calmness I find listening to the waves, the warm sand beneath my toes and the warm sunshine!
I wanted to make a 100% waterproof & adjustable necklace!
Never have to worry about your necklace tarnishing or rusting again with my cultured sea glass seed bead necklaces! You adjust the necklace by a sliding knot, eliminating the need for a metal clasp and you have 2 strings that fall on the back of your neck but you will forget that they are there which is perfect. I love the adjustable length, you can wear it as small as 13 to as big as 24 inches for easy wear! You can swim, shower, sweat, do anything you want and have your necklace look as good as when you first received it!
I wanted to modernize the sea glass jewelry industry!
I wanted a necklace design so I never look out of place. Authentic and genuine sea glass jewelry is very expensive and very delicate, so fancy you would look out of place if you tried wearing it on a hike. The sea glass jewelry industry is not made or designed for generation z and that's where Made By Caitlyn comes with the solution. I've made my designs cater to the wants and needs of gen z and yes my designs are for anyone and everyone! I've made my designs versatile, 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. Look cute yet casual. I also love my designs because they are colorful and its nice to be able to add a subtle pop of color to all my outfits!!!
I wanted to create sea glass jewelry that more people could afford!
I also wanted to create a necklace inspired by the sea that wouldn't break your bank. My jewelry is affordable because I use cultured sea glass which is made of high quality recycled glass that has been machine tumbled in order to mimic genuine sea glass. These beads possess a smooth soft frosty matte surface much like true sea glass. Cultured sea glass provides beautiful colors and allows me to make sea glass jewelry for an affordable price! I wanted to create sea glass jewelry that more people could afford. Yes the sea glass is not real, it’s material to mimic it. This way you can buy sea glass jewelry that won’t break the bank or if you don’t have the budget to afford authentic sea glass jewelry.
Thank you so much for all of your support!
