“My father never made jewelry before, and yet there it was, simple…and annoyingly beautiful,” she jokes.
What’s even more amazing than the jewelry itself is the fact that George makes every piece with things that most people would throw away, like scrap metal and old wires.
“I was so impressed,” she writes, “that I pushed him to create more pieces.”
The father-daughter duo draws inspiration from mythology and fantasy. Carolin’s mother filled her childhood with adventure books and classical myths, and those stories stuck with her. The influence is clear in these designs.
Shortly after Carolin posted photos of the pendants online, they went viral. They received so much support and praise that she and George decided to continue on in their incredible collaboration.
They even opened their own Etsy shop called Calisto Breeze, and they’ve been met with success. It’s clear that this brand is driven by passion, creativity, and love.
According to Carolin, “My dad is the heart and mind behind our brand. He first draws all of the designs, and then he works late into the night to create amazingly beautiful pieces.”
While Carolin primarily serves as her dad’s manager, he’s currently teaching her the ropes so that she can add some of her own designs to the collection!
