A Little Bit About Distinctly Caitlin Designs
My name is Caitlin Harper and handmade jewellery is my passion.
I discovered the amazing, creative, sometimes frustrating, but always inspiring world of jewellery while still at school and I have been hooked ever since.
I studied at the University of Johannesburg, in South Africa where I received my Bachelors Degree in Jewellery Design and Manufacture. I then went on to work at 2 manufacturing workshops in Johannesburg for 5 years before moving to France and setting up my own workshop.
As you will see I am slightly obsessed with flowers and the colours that they bring into this world. Living in the Pyrenees mountains has only enhanced that obsession.
All my pieces are made with precious metals. My collection pieces are sterling silver but I will work in gold if requested.
I hope you get as much enjoyment from the pieces as I did while designing and making them.

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
