Wedding Rings by Carla Caruso now at Quirk

CARLA CARUSO was born in New York City and graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in glass sculpture. After years working in glass, and making jewelry for several prominent New York designers, Carla moved to Western Massachusetts where she now lives. She founded Carla Caruso Jewelry in 2001.

Carla Caruso Jewelry is handmade in a small studio outside Northampton. Her goal is simplicity: to distill an idea to its essence and create timeless jewelry that wears beautifully.

Watch for Carla's beautiful rings available on our online shopping site later today.

Rainy Day Blues

Got the rainy day blues? Here are some of my very favorite things to keep my cozy on the rainiest of days.

New Work from Mari Fray Foster

We were lucky ladies yesterday and had a visit from Mari Fray Foster. She is a jeweler we love and the author of the blog Mari Makes. She brought us two new pieces for Quirk Represents. Heirloom Necklace #3 and Heirloom Necklace #4 are 100 % hand stitched and embroidered. My mind is blown and the time and craftsmanship that has gone into these pieces. Lovely.
