Caitlyn Rose is a metalsmith born and raised on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.
The influence of such a place resonates clearly in her designs. Beachy, rough yet delicate pieces aim to evoke the feeling a full moon casts over an open ocean. She doesn’t know what that means exactly, but hopes the work will speak for itself.
Her lineage tells the story of many a metalsmith. While her grandfather crafted one-of-a-kind knives at the steal plant, her mother was graduating from NSCAD University with a major in jewellery design. Her sister followed in the same vein and now casts beautiful antique lace in her Montreal studio. This history keeps her grounded and assured of her path.
Every piece is made by hand, using gold, silver, bronze or whatever other material is handy.
