Ikigai Jewelry is the handmade metal & stone based work of Carolyn Hudson. The foundation of Carolyn’s work is the belief in the power that jewelry holds to act as everyday talismans.
Though a New Hampshire native, her wanderlust has led her to many parts of the world. Carolyn is heavily influenced by those natural environments in which she has visited, lived in and is most drawn to. Often she adds an inspirational message to keep the wearer inspired and aligned on their path. Each piece of her work is imbued with heart and a handcrafted aesthetic all her own. She works mainly in sterling with some gold and always sources her stones from ethical US lapidaries.
