Rory and Cari Streeter launched Jewelry by Cari 19 years ago, in 2002. They work together to design, create and promote their collection nationwide. Cari sculpts the original pieces out of clay and Rory uses his metalsmithing skills to transform her sculptures into beautiful fine jewelry. Fashion, artistry, and the people who wear their designs inspire them to continuously create new things. They met 20 years ago when Cari was on a snowboarding adventure in Rory's homeland, New Zealand, and fell in love. Together they moved to California and then to Hood River, Oregon, where they are raising their two children.
ABOUT THE JEWELRY
Jewelry by Cari is a finely crafted collection of jewelry that is interchangeable and can be personalized to have special meaning. Each design is hand-sculpted with a clay-like material and cast in precious metals. The jewelry has a distinctive, organic style and is hand-finished with care. Personalized pieces are skillfully and artistically hand-stamped, one letter at a time. Charms and chains are sold separately to allow complete freedom to build, stack and layer to create personal combinations to be treasured forever. People of all ages fall in love the unique look, feel and simplicity of Jewelry by Cari.
