Welcome to Cara's Creations, your source for unique contemporary jewelry handmade by Cara Jablon in Washington, D.C. Cara, a retired attorney, has been designing jewelry since 1999. Her jewelry has been displayed and sold in numerous juried shows in the Washington, D.C. area. She is a juried member of the Northern Virginia Handcrafters Guild and is currently serving as president of the Guild.
Cara's work includes coiled wire necklaces and earrings, woven and kumihimo necklaces, pewter and semi-precious stone necklaces and earrings, and shaped wire earrings. She also makes metal-free pearl lariats, which are an ideal jewelry solution for women with metal allergies. Many of Cara's designs feature multi-color crystals or stones and make excellent travel jewelry.
Materials used in Cara's jewelry include fresh-water pearls, semi-precious stones, sterling silver, pewter, wire, crystal and glass. All of Cara's necklaces have easy to use clasps, primarily toggles.
Pictured above on this page is a coiled wire necklace with blue, green and purple tones. Additional coiled wire necklaces are shown on the "coiled wire necklace" page. Coiled wire necklaces are available in gold/silver/copper, red/silver/black, and blue/turquoise combinations. Custom color combinations can be ordered.
The "pewter necklace" page displays necklaces with pewter circles and coral, turquoise, or multi-color semi-precious stones; pewter inverted squares with multi-color stones; pewter ovals with onyx, glass or multi-color stones; pewter squares; pewter open squares with multi-color crystal or gold balls; and pewter decorative balls, either plain or with lapis. Shown on the "other necklaces" page are a variety of multi-strand necklaces, several woven necklaces, a kumihimo necklace, a gold pearl lariat and two very lightweight rubber necklaces. A variety of earrings are displayed on the "earrings" and "more earrings" pages. Most necklaces have matching earrings. Many of the pictured necklaces can be ordered in different lengths. Cara can also design a necklace, earrings, or a bracelet to your specifications. Earrings can be ordered with sterling silver wires, closed loops or posts, or non-pierced backs.
