Carolyn Moran, owner of Care More Creations in Sterling, Alaska, in association with The Artisan Group, has been selected to gift a one of a kind, handcrafted wire wrapped gemstone pendant in an exclusive collaborative gift bag prepared especially for celebrity Rachael Ray.
Online PR News – 24-April-2012 – Sterling, Alaska – Jewelry designer Carolyn Moran, owner of Care More Creations, http://www.caremorecreations.com, has created an exclusive pendant for celebrity Rachael Ray. The pendant is part of a collaborative gift bag delivered to Ms. Ray’s agents in New York City on April 13.
The Sterling, Alaska jewelry designer, who has also gifted actress Jessica Alba, and who will have her pendants in gift bags and on display at the MTV Movie Awards this May, specializes in individually handcrafted wire wrapped gemstone jewelry. For Ms. Ray, she designed a natural, raw Peridot pendant with a stone enhancing rustic gun-metal wire setting. “I’m a huge fan of Rachael Ray,” said Moran. “Her spunk and passion are inspiring, and her personality makes her a joy to watch. I also love that she is an advocate for children through her non-profit organization, Yum-O! Needless to say, it’s been an honor to have my work selected for this special gift bag.”
Moran is a self-taught jeweler who has found her creative voice working with healing stone jewelry that she designs using natural stones and wire-wrapping. “Over time, I’ve learned to let the stone tell me what to do with the piece—it speaks to me through its own unique characteristics of shape, color and striations,” noted Moran. “The color of the wire, the curves and swirls of the wire setting and the little baubles I add enhance each stone’s unique personality.” Although it was not her original intent, the frequent compliments Moran received when she wore her designs encouraged her to launch Care More Creations in 2008.
Moran creates out of her studio overlooking the Kenai River, within eyeshot of eagles, salmon, moose and bear, using stones she discovers through nature walks and at local and online bead and rock shops. She designs her jewelry to complement a lifestyle that takes her from the wilds of Alaska to the beaches of Belize. Her wire wrapped pendants are popular with women of all ages, especially those who share her passion for nature and fashion. As Moran notes, “The natural stones work well with a casual style, adding drama to a simple wardrobe, yet the swirly wire settings look fabulous with formal attire.” In addition, Moran’s focus on the healing properties of the stones has drawn an avid group of customers who enjoy combining looking good with healthful benefits.
Moran sells her jewelry online through her website (http://www.caremorecreations.com) and on Etsy (http://www.caremore.etsy.com). She has happy customers from the United States and Canada, as well as Australia, Europe, Israel and Japan. Several local gift shops carry her work and she is in the process of expanding to shops and boutiques outside the state. Moran is a member of The Artisan Group and has had her work featured in several blogs including In Her Shoes and AllAlaska.
