It’s been a week here at When Caitie met Soda. I have had the honour of making some beautiful pieces for some truly beautiful souls. It’s funny, but no matter how many times I make something, I never tire of the process. From start to finish, making jewellery, for me, is akin to a true love story.
I begin work, optimistic and hopelessly in love with the design. As the day goes on, there are invariably a few ‘lovers tiffs’ (don’t you love that phrase? It’s so fabulously British!) along the way. But, at the end of it all, I always come back to it: my true love: creating. The transformation from raw materials to something that will be worn by someone is something that humbles and inspires me in equal measure. I won’t lie to you- it’s not all roses in the garden; there are arguments along the way, and, sometimes swearwords (Christie can definitely attest to this!) But, somehow, I always find my way back.
Today, I was up and in my studio (currently a table in my conservatory) at 7AM because I was desperate to work on a new design that has been percolating in my big ol’ head for quite some time. And, I think I’m in love. The inspiration behind this little pretty is simple. It’s you; the people who have supported When Caitie met Soda right from the very beginning, and the ones who have joined us along the way. Not a day goes by when I am not awed by your support. So, this itty bitty is for you.
For those of you who follow us on Instagram and who have been asking, she’ll be landing in the shop really soon. I cannot wait to add this delicate little pretty to the collection.
Until next time, friends,
Caitie, and, of course, Soda xxx
