Caithlin was recently interviewed by Lacy Muircastle of the SL Enquirer in her ‘Spotlight On‘ section of the popular online newspaper. Answering questions about CCD, jewelry design as well as her real life jewelry preferences; this is a truly in-depth insight into CCD and Caithlin’s work here in SL.
Lacy writes “Jewellery serves only one purpose: it makes people happy, both those who give it and those who receive it. Jewellery celebrates special people and the significant moments in their lives. It creates and reflects beautiful memories. It also takes a special talent to design jewellery and in Second Life one of the most renowned jewellery designs is Caithlin Carter of CCD. I can personally attest to the fact that her work is absolutely stunning and visiting her store is always dangerous for the wallet.”

Overall Winner - Katherine Comet wearing 'Patty'
The overall winner of the CCD Reflecting Jewelry photo competition is Katherine Comet. With a competition running over 3 months, there was an enormous selection of stunning photographs to enjoy and CCD received over 65 entries in total. Of these entries, December’s photograph of Katherine Comet wearing Patty truly impressed, combining not only great technique and an excellent portrayal of CCD jewelry but also a real artistic flare and a great sense of elegance and beauty.
