When Carolyn A’Hearn first tried out jewelry-making while studying graphic design at the University of Iowa, she turned up her nose. “I just didn’t really like it,” she says, “I thought, ‘Welp, this definitely isn’t for me.’”
Fast-forward a few years, and this same woman is crafting ultra-sleek pendants and nearly futuristic earrings—and loving every minute of it. “I don’t really know what changed,” she says. “But a few years ago, I bought myself a jewelry class for my birthday.” Soon enough, she was apprenticing with Caroline Glemann of Liloveve Jewelry and was working on her debut collection, which sought to capture what archaeologists ages from now might find from excavations of the early 21st century. (Yeah, you read right.)
These days, Carolyn, who went official with her namesake line in 2013, can hardly walk down the street without some aggressively elegant shape or intersecting plane catching her attention. “When I get an idea for a design in my head, I draw it right away. My mind is pretty much always aligning and fitting things together in pleasant asymmetries and nice little arrangements,” she explains. In this way, her illustration education comes to the forefront. “I feel like the jewelry has been a very natural transition from two-dimensional work into 3D pieces!” Bet college-age Carolyn could get down with that. —jane-claire quigley
