This hair pin is absolutely GORGEOUS and I am beyond excited to wear it for my wedding in April! It came broken in the mail (which I guarantee happened in delivery), I sent her a message, mailed it back, and received a new one in no time. Great customer service and a great product!

About

The History of Cara Stimmel and her vintage assemblage designs.

Cara Stimmel was born during an era of innovation, at a time when grand craftsmanship and intricate artisan work had fallen by the wayside. Growing up in the bedroom community of Queens, surrounded by her parents' social circle of artists, writers, and decorators, Cara's imagination was sculpted with encouragement for free thinking and self-expression. This exposure to master craftsmen and great art created the foundation for her unique aesthetic, not only in her jewelry design, but in all aspects of her life.

In 1987, Cara opened her first factory, Cara Stimmel, LTD., to produce larger quantities of her jewelry. She sold her line to department and specialty stores world wide, producing it all in house. After decades of adhering to dictated trends and the hectic schedules of Fashion Week, Cara decided to take a fresh approach to her jewelry, and Fern Street Designs by Cara Stimmel was born. A more organic, free form collection, created by hand, with intricate vintage parts collaged together is what Cara refers to as "assemblage." Reusing and recycling come naturally to her, so she utilizes found objects, highlighting them as the jewels in her pieces. Manipulating abstract parts into different entities produced the Steampunk vibe present in many of her creations.
