I absolutely LOVE my rings. Customer service was prompt and engaging. The rings are beautiful and exceed my expectations. I couldn't be happier and Catie is a pleasure to work with! BEAUTIFUL!!!
The journey that started with a small Soda-shaped staffy...
When Caitie met Soda was born in May 2013, when Caitie adopted Soda, a one-year-old Staffordshire-Bullterrier, after leaving a post-graduate course at university when she unexpectedly fell illl. Soda gave Caitie a reason to get out of bed in the morning, and, in doing so, inadvertently gave her back her light.
The journey to recovery was a long one, punctuated with moments of despair. Somewhere on this journey, Caitie decided to learn traditional silversmithing techniques, in order to design and create her own jewellery. Among Caitie's first designs was a set of beautiful rings, now known as the Little Comet rings, which she made for her sister and business partner, Christie.
Christie encouraged Caitie to reproduce her designs and begin selling them under the name Caitie had coined for her designs; When Caitie met Soda. Growing up with a mother whose passion for jewellery was second-to-none instilled in both sisters an appreciation for fine, well-made jewellery from an early age, and made the decision to create their own jewellery as natural as breathing.
Guided by their passion for jewellery, and supported by their loving family, Christie and Caitie are the hearts behind When Caitie met Soda. Together they hope to create pieces that will become as much a part of your story as they are of ours. Here’s to the journey.
I'm Caitie. Accident prone and clumsy, I'm a lover of all things creative, with magpie like tendencies. I love making beautiful things, for beautiful people. Oh, and I love my little doggy, Soda Booth-Barker.
Business Manager, Marketer, Owner
I'm Christie. Pro-dancer turned business pro, sister and best friend to Caitie. I'm passionate about handmade, pretty, pretty things, which we make for you here at When Caitie met Soda.
Assistant, Chief Cheese Eater
Why hello, friends. I'm Soda. I don't make jewellery, I don't actually know what jewellery is, but I sniff each order before it goes out, and give it a cheeky lick. Also, I like cheese.
When Caitie met Soda is about designing and creating beautiful handmade pieces of jewellery. We have a passion for combining simple shapes and mixing precious metals to create striking pieces. Our pieces play with the concept of contrast: the state of being strikingly different to something in close association, in order to highlight the beauty of individual components used in our designs.
