About Me
I'm a green couture jewelry and accessories designer, photo stylist and earth inspired artist committed to environmental responsibility in and out of the studio. I run a carbon neutral label that is both eco-friendly and fashion forward. I am always looking for new ways to reduce my carbon footprint, both personally and as a designer. Even small changes can really add up.

My background is in advertising and editorial creative and this carries over into my work in jewelry and fashion. I have also been doing work as a makeup artist since 2005 and often work in this capacity in addition to working as a stylist, as well as when working on editorial projects featuring my jewelry.

I'm also a writer and blogger on eco-friendly topics, including environmental responsibility within the jewelry and art industries. I am currently working on a project to promote environmentally responsibility in the arts and creative approaches to living and working as green as possible.

IN THE WORKS: I am currently working on two "Elementals" collections that will feature sculptured mixed-metals, designer cabochons and hand-carved gemstones, glass work and more. Additionally, I am designing a bold collection of earth-inspired designs of natural materials designed specifically for editorial use. And, lastly, I am also working on an elegant bridal collection featuring shells, pearls, hand-tied silks, sculptured metals and more.
Fashion Industry Experience
I've been working as an art/creative director and stylist for 19 years, much of which has been within the fashion and beauty industries. I began pursuing jewelry and accessories design as a hobby in 2005, then eventually moved into full-time work as a designer. I still work as a stylist, although it has taken a somewhat secondary role to my work as a designer.

Acailawen Designs is a green couture jewelry and accessories label with a focus on elegance in design and a commitment to environmentally responsible design practices. My work can best be described as couture elegance, redefined.
