About CariCat Designs
After being in the Federal systems integrator industry most of my career, I was repeatedly told that in order to advance, I needed to lose my femininity, cut my hair short, and dress more like a man. I resisted through the years and was successful in my own right but admittedly every time I went to buy some "statement" jewelry, they were either majorly expensive or what I call "blah."
So I decided to make some myself and make them colorful and relatively inexpensive compared to many of the stores in my immediate area just outside of the Nation's capital. By education, I am an engineer from Penn State but also a woman who enjoys being a woman or in my case a girl. My inspiration also came from my two kitties Chester and Orville who are by my side when I make each pair of "statement" earrings. My thinking is ... what was that Cyndi Lauper song? Oh that's right!!! Girls Just Want to Have Fun!!!
