Distinctly Caitlin Designs
Beautiful, handcrafted affirmation tokens.
Designed to inspire thoughtful women to look for the good in their everyday lives and create long lasting habits of positvity.
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, using traditional enamel and goldsmith techniques.
I believe in manifesting. It is the principle that “on what you focus, you will manifest” and is a daily practice of brain retraining. Having a physical object with you, like one of my tokens, that you have mentally attached your affirmations to, can help you stay focused on the good in your life.
I have carefully selected each one of the flowers that inspires a collection, for its meaning. All flowers have meanings and I am so inspired by that subtle and secret conversation between the token and the wearer.
I call them tokens because tokens are symbols of a bigger concept, a hope, a wish, or a feeling. Jewellery has throughout history served as tokens for protection, power, and love. I want people to be able to use and treasure their jewellery rather than just wear it.
The enamel technique I use is called Plique-à-jour.
This technique creates an effect similar to stained glass.
I love that each piece has layers of meaning. I draw meaning from the fact that 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.
Limited Edition Tokens
A few times a year one limited edition token design is released.
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.
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.
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
I love this gorgeous piece. The detail is phenomenal.
I wanted to rethink 3 rings and combine into one. Caitlin took my initial idea and came up with the perfect design. I agree with all the other happy customers, Caitlin is very talented. In fact, I've already asked her to design another ring! Thank you for my new ring, I'm so pleased with it and can't wait to show it off. I shall spread the word..!
I love what Caitlin does! She has now done about 4 or 5 commissions for me including a re-vamped engagement ring and I have been totally thrilled and gobsmacked every time! So talented! Thanks Caitlin x
