Last Leg Jewelry is a way for myself to express my passion for handmade products. Making things by hand is a skill instilled in me long before I began making jewelry. Now, this little one-woman business is both a way to connect to myself and to the larger handmade community.
Last Leg is a jewelry line handmade by Caroline McDonald in the lower mainland of British Columbia.Last Leg is a jewelry line handmade by Caroline McDonald in the lower mainland of British Columbia.Caroline has been making jewelry under different incarnations for over 15 years. A self-taught maker with a love for learning, she constantly falls in love with new materials, techniques, and styles. Her mother, a geology teacher, brought her up with a love for natural stones and gems. Many summers ofher childhood were spent rock-hounding the beautiful landscapes of British Columbia and she is proud to say her collection of “rocks” is overflowing. Caroline began making jewelry as a distraction during a difficult time in her life (hence last leg). Now it is an obsession and creative outlet that keeps her grounded. She finds inspiration in resilient materials and organic processes of creation. You can often find her sitting at her kitchen table with a scattering of beads and chain moving pieces around like a puzzle.It is Caroline's hope that wearers of Last Leg jewelry will find connection and strength in the pieces they choose to adorn themselves with.
