Carolyn Cavalier's Profile

About

I have been making jewelry since I was a teenager, and received a strand of Italian millefiori beads as a gift. A few years later, when I left my home in Nashville, I discovered how my soul resonates with the sea. My choice of stones and colors reflects this. I use the blue-greens of aquamarine, apatite, chalcedony, and labradorite. I love pearls, seashells, and coral. Amethyst, tourmaline, ruby, and citrine remind me of the beautiful colors of a Hawaiian sunset.

In metals, I prefer the rich glow of high carat gold, the soft pink hue of rose gold, the lovely patina of oxidized silver, and the way they each complement the powerful energy of the stones.

When my kids were young, I was an activist, working in their schools, and in the community on social justice issues. I would often give my jewelry to non-profits for their auctions. As the kids got older, and left…

When my kids were young, I was an activist, working in their schools, and in the community on social justice issues. I would often give my jewelry to non-profits for their auctions. As the kids got older, and left for college, I began to take my creativity more seriously.

Although I am largely self-taught, I have taken classes at universities, Revere Academy, art and community centers, bead stores, galleries, and privately.

As an artist, I’ve become aware of the impact of materials on the environment, so I’ve begun to repurpose orphaned hoop earrings into bracelets and rings; recycle metals, and turn worn cashmere and damaged leather into beautiful gloves and bags.

I am also a life coach and counselor, holding an MA degree in counseling psychology. I believe that the stones each carry a particular energy, and can help us focus our intention on whatever it is we need--mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
