Distinctly Caitlin Designs
Handcrafted affirmation jewellery and art.
Designed to help you build your own positive affirmation practice.
Why affirmation tokens?
My affirmation tokens are designed to inspire you to continue to choose positivity everyday.
The mental and physical benefits of positive thinking have been observed in multiple scientific studies. A positive mindset can not only give you more confidence and improve your mood, but it can help with stress management which reduces the harmful effects of stress on the body. Having a physical object with you at all times can help be a constant reminder to stay focused on the positives while you build the habit of positivity.
I call my jewellery "tokens" because tokens are symbols of a bigger concept, a hope, a wish, or a feeling. The meaning of the piece is not obvious. It is a personal item that the wearer treasures and can use to make a positive impact on their lives rather than just wear it.
I want my artwork to be used in a similar way. To help you have your affirmations in a prominent place that you see all the time. Such as on stickers, prints, and other products. This then becomes part of how you see the world and and the more you do it the more natural it will become for those positive thoughts to flow to you, even in the darker times.
Due to the complexities of the new VAT regulations regarding items sold to the UK, I have set up an Etsy Store to make these sales possible again. Please click the link below to go to that store and make a purchase.
I apologise for the inconvenience
Affirmation Card Deck
I have taken my floral paintings and turned them into Art Nouveau inspired affirmation cards. These cards can be used
as a daily tool for building habits of positivity in your life.
Custom Tokens for Special Moments
Flowers can mean anything from "love", "happiness" and "confidence" to the more subtle "I promise to be true" and "I will never forget you".
This sentimental quality makes them the perfect inspiration for gifts.
My tokens can be a way for a bride to subtly and beautifully wish good things for her bridesmaids or to express her wishes for her own future. They can be a treasured memento of a loved one or even to welcome a new family member into the world.
I have made tokens that were inspired by a clients favorite flower, tokens that were designed using the flower that had the same meaning as the clients name and even used the flowers that were in a wedding bouquet as inspiration.
Wearable, meaningful jewellery that reminds you of all the good in your life.
Limited Edition Tokens
A few times a year one limited edition token design is released, normally in collaboration with another artist, photographer or influencer.
This design is normally more detailed than the other tokens and has more intricate enamel work.
There are only ever 5 tokens made at a time. They sell on a first come first serve basis so keep an eye out before they are all gone.
Living in the French Pyrenees countryside, I am surrounded by flowers and endless examples of how magnificent nature is. This beautiful place inspired me to make floral affirmation tokens. I use traditional goldsmith and enamel techniques, such as Plique-à-jour.
This enamel technique creates an effect similar to stained glass by layering crushed glass into hand cut "cells" or "windows" and then firing it, so they melt together and form a "pane".
Personally I love how the pieces get more beautiful when you hold them up to the light and look closely, in the same way that our lives look better when you look closely and see each individual small positive moment throughout your day.
I love it! I wore it for the first time on my birthday on Thursday and now I'm about to celebrate and wearing it again, love it!
I just gave my mom the necklace, she absolutely loves it. She is so grateful and it's so special, so thank you so much!
I‘m absolutley in love with my token.
The way the light falls through it, is so beautiful. And it‘s so great to have a little magical physical reminder for meaningful mantras with you. Also, this token is perfect for all outfits.
I went looking for a marsh marigold necklace on Google and I could not be happier I found this piece of jewelry! It is my all-time favorite necklace and I will never take it off. I absolutely love how beautiful it is (Caitlin is so talented!) but also the positivity it radiates! ☀
I bought this as a special Christmas gift. It didn’t disappoint! Everything from the beautifully folded wrapping to the lovely design, all quite amazing and a lovely very memorable Christmas gift. Thank you.
I asked for a pair of Iris Earrings (Hope/Wisdom) for my birthday, and I’ve basically not taken them off since! The colours are so vibrant and beautiful, and the earrings are so comfy and light to wear. The detail is truly exceptional. Could not recommend Caitlin more! Will definitely be back for more jewellery!!! 💙
Bought as a gift but couldn't resist unpacking them to have a peek. They look beautifully made and the colours are lovely.
I was lucky enough to receive a token as a gift and decided to purchase a small matching token for my daughter as a birthday gift. Caitlin kept in touch throughout and let me know as soon as it was sent. When it arrived I was thrilled! The packing is beautiful and the token is simply stunning. A little something that connects us and that I hope reminds her each time she looks at it, of how amazing she is to me.
I am LOVING the necklace I bought! I feel so great with it on and have gotten so many compliments on it. Thank you!
Beautifully crafted jewellery piece. Particularly liked the innovative clasp design. When combined with the individually worked porcelain beads, this is a unique necklace that can complement a range of garments and is an ideal gift for a special occasion.
Caitlin made a beautiful bracelet for my daughter when she had her first baby. His name was a secret shared only with Caitlin. She is an amazing artist and able to keep secrets.
Thank you so much !
Caitlin is amazingly talented and has made some beautiful rings for me and my fiancé. She is great to work with when having input into bespoke pieces
Incredibly talented artist with a true love for her work!
Caitlin made a most beautiful necklace and matching earrings in onyx and silver fern as a present for my sister.
Her interpretation of my ideas was brilliant and she sent the design and costing before she started work. It was all completed ahead of the time scale that I had suggested and I was delighted with the result.
My sister loved her present and said that it was “very her” . What more could I have asked for?
If you are looking for original jewellery, a special present or even a treat for yourself, look no further!
Beautiful jewellery! Caitlin is so creative and skilled. I absolutely love the new necklace she created out of an old one that had seen better days. It’s not just as good as new, it’s actually way better and I LOVE it! My Mum really loved her citrine earrings too and my tree of life necklace is getting worn every day
