CFD Fine Jewelry is the handmade fine jewelry line that is designed, owned, and handcrafted by Caroline Forrester Downes. Caroline grew up surrounded by art, influenced by her mother, father, and grandmother, all of whom taught her how to design and create. Caroline began making jewelry starting at the young age of 13, by creating and selling one of a kind earrings and necklaces. She went on to receive her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, concentrating in Graphic design, and became the Graphic Designer for Burley Oak Brewing Company, creating product, packaging, can and bottle designs. Caroline left her Graphic Design career behind to follow her life-long dream of creating jewelry full-time, and began taking classes with metalsmith & gemologist, Michael Schwartz at Creative Metalworks School of Design.
CFD Fine Jewelry opened its doors in March of 2016, located in the heart of downtown Berlin, Maryland. Since then, CFD Fine Jewelry has been seen in boutiques, as well as online shops, trunk shows, pop-up shops, art festivals, and fairs. Watch the video below for a sneak peek into the studio!
