Carolyn Tillie: Brooch w/ Turquoise
sterling silver, and 22k bezel
Carolyn Tillie is a jeweler and artist who passionately combines cooking and food with wearable art. She has completed both a Master Chef certification and a Master of Fine Arts at the California State University. Tillie creates playful pieces from food packaging, making it so that wearer’s can express their love of particular foods through sustainable and up-cycled art.
Tillie also creates work incorporating her interest in history and metaphysics. Continuing with her desire to re-purpose and recycle, the “Edwardian” jewelry she creates utilizes 100-year old, vintage Edwardian jewelry – mostly Guilloche cufflinks – stoked into modern and compelling designs.
