Announcement   Thank you for visiting Sleepy Cat Jewelry's shop. I'm a jewelry artist in New Jersey who creates handcrafted silver, copper and gold jewelry using wire wrapping and metal smithing techniques. I find inspiration from trees, flowers, birds, the ocean and, of course, cats. Spirals also make a regular appearance in my work as I love the swirls and how they symbolize energy. My work ranges from the rustic or bohemian look to exquisitely detailed fine jewelry designs. Regardless of the design, each piece is meticulously crafted by hand. All components, charms, etc are created by me unless otherwise noted in the description. This allows me to maintain control over the piece from start to finish ensuring that the jewelry is not only beautiful but will hold up to everyday wear and tear and be treasured for years to come.

I absolutely LOVE this cat necklace. It is so beautifully made. I bought another necklace by SleepyCat jewelry at a country fair & I loved that necklace too...I had to check out what else she made. I'm so glad I did.

About

Artist Statement for Carolyn Jones, Owner of Sleepy Cat Jewelry

As a jewelry artist, I make jewelry that reflects the joy and awe I experience observing nature and classic patterns around me. I'm inspired by trees changing with the seasons, the brilliant, varied colors of birds and butterflies, the energy of wind and ocean waves or the comforting curl of a cat's tail. I find such satisfaction in taking a simple, blank, square of sheet metal or wire and transforming it into something recognizable, aesthetically pleasing and wearable. I work with wire and metal because of the amazing depth and texture that can be achieved by using metal working, wire wrapping and wire weaving techniques. I've always loved natural stones and their addition to my work adds the color or sparkle that really makes the design come to life.
The end product may be, as a customer described, “deceptively simple,” perhaps fashioned solely from copper or silver wire. However, that piece usually involved many hours of work – shaping wire to the right form, hammering it for durability and beauty and wrapping each coil with precision and care. I value handcrafting my own components and charms and prefer to connect parts using wire wrapping or other cold connections instead of jump rings or machine-made elements. All of this work lends to an artisan design that will withstand everyday wear and be treasured for years to come.
I am a self-taught jewelry artist but I take classes and workshops to learn new skills and improve on current techniques. I sell my work in multiple juried art shows and festivals during the year, at different retail locations, and online in my Etsy shop.

    Owner, Creator, Designer

    I'm thrilled to be the owner of Sleepy Cat Jewelry. The spark was ignited when I took my first wire wrapping class and continues to grow with each piece I design and create. I constantly find inspiration in the beauty of nature, and, of course, cats.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I love to do custom orders. Custom order requests can range from simple changes to chain length (usually at no extra charge!) or to add an extra link to a bracelet and range all the way up to a 100% unique, one of a kind piece you've dreamed up. The first step is to contact me and from there we can discuss details. I'll quickly provide you with a quote and estimated completion time.
