Patterns and forms expressed in the natural world are the primary inspiration for Carrie Bilbo Jewelry. Beautiful hand fabricated and cast pieces               evoke a joyful communion between the man-made and the organic, creating an entire world of timeless and wearable sculptures for the Carrie Bilbo Jewelry customer to explore.

Carrie Bilbo 

Studio jeweler Carrie Bilbo launched her own company in 2010, shortly after receiving her BFA from Pratt Institute’s Jewelry and Metalsmithing program. In four short years, her work has appeared in several fashion magazines, exhibitions, down New York City runways, and on celebrities such as Whoopi Goldberg and Isabelle Fuhrman.

Inspired by travel and her Kentucky roots, Carrie's Brooklyn studio today overflows with scraps of natural found objects that are at the very heart of her current collections. As in selecting organic uncut stones, her rings, bracelets, earrings and pendants evoke a uniqueness that interplays natural objects with carefully crafted porcelains and precious metals.
