Caitlin Mociun’s 10 Favorite Things

This week’s posts have featured two of my all-time favorite jewelry experts: Russell of Erie Basin and today we’re peeking into the life of jewelry designer Caitlin Mociun. For at least a year I mispronounced Caitlin’s last name and walked around wondering who this “Motion” person everyone was raving about was. Then one day someone, thankfully, set me straight and told me the designer I already loved (who I kept referring to as “Mo-kew-en”) was in fact actually Caitlin Mociun, pronounced correctly as motion. Thankfully I didn’t get a chance to meet Caitlin until I knew how to properly say her name and compliment her on creating some of the most stunning jewelry I’ve ever seen. Not only is Caitlin’s jewelry beautiful, inventive and modern, it’s some of the most sought-after and applauded work in the fashion and media world, too. I’ve yet to meet a person who didn’t secretly long for one of her designs or crush on her visually inspiring Tumblr page. Bottom line? Caitlin has a wonderful sense of style and it carries through in everything she does. Today she’s sharing her 10 Favorites with us, including her favorite fashion accessories, snacks, books, antiques and artwork of the moment. Thanks so much to Caitlin for sharing these with us today! xo, grace

    I need to know where to buy those gorgeous, high-waisted jeans!

  2. I just went and checked out Caitlin’s Tumblr, wow! I love her rings. I pinned a quite a few. Thank you for bring this artist to my attention. The Kenzo book is quite lovely too.

    That opal ring is to die for…

  4. Joanna says:

    I never take off my Mociun/Of a Kind earrings I scored last spring. These are the only earrings I ever want to wear (and I used to be all over the gold hoops and chandelier earrings of the early-mid 00’s…..aaaaah, youth!). I’m dying for the opal necklace, too. Some day….

  5. Inness says:

    Jenny and I have the same idea – I need those jeans!
