Everyday this jewelry reviewer pursues her desire to extend the benefits of literacy to as many children as possible. This reviewer clicks on a red rectangle that can be found on a certain literacy-themed website. Perhaps one day that click will produce a picture of a piece of Carolyn Tyler jewelry.

The sale of jewelry is a proven fund-raising technique. It has thus been used by those that seek money for the purchase and distribution of books. The link between books and jewelry may well be strengthened by these comments from Carolyn Tyler:

“But my true passion is hunting for and finding a unique gem, pearl or artifact that commands me to transcend the merely ‘artful’ and create a design where beauty and meaning are forged into a piece with talismanic power for the wearer.”

Carolyn Tyler lives in a land that children often read about in books that have a dream-like setting. Carlyn Tyler lives on an island in the South Pacific. Sometimes, Carolyn comes across marvelous pearls. Sometimes she finds ancient coins. She uses both of those items in her jewelry.

The symbolism of the tribes that once lived in the South Pacific appears frequently in the everyday items that Carolyn Tyler encounters. Consequently no one should be surprised to find that the same symbolism in many pieces of Carolyn Tyler jewelry.

The art, music and dance of the same tribes have survived, and have influenced present-day culture in the South Pacific. Subject to the daily effects of that influence, Carolyn Tyler has allowed that influence to guide the way that she designs her jewelry. Some of her jewelry pieces recall the themes of an ancient tribal civilization.

Sometimes Carolyn Tyler uses a hammer and punches on metal, hitting the metal from the back or inside. In that way, she manages to raise a design on the metal’s surface. She thus gives her customers jewelry that demonstrates her knowledge of repousse, a technique that is also called chasing and embossing.

Sometimes Carolyn Tyler attaches tiny spheres to a piece of metal. She accomplishes that by using a fillet. In that way, she can produce a piece of metal that appears to have had tiny particles set-into the metal. Ms. Tyler is able to carry-out that laborious process because she has learned how to practice the art of granulation.

Carolyn Tyler likes to work with metals, but she does not always work with sheets of metal. Sometimes she works with thin, metal rods. She has learned how to shape and weave those thin, metal rods. She has learned the art of filigree, whereby thin pieces of metal are used to make a delicate design.

  1. Thank you very much for featuring my work on your wonderful website. I really appreciate the thoughtful and complimentary writing, but I need to make a couple of corrections if I may. I live in Bali, Indonesia, which is in Southeast Asia in the Indian Ocean, and a very long way from the South Pacific (10 hours by plane). The movie, “South Pacific”, with it’s famous song “Bali Hai” was set in Polynesia (probably filmed in Tahiti), and this has produced a lot of confusion. Indonesia is the largest Islamic country in the world and the archipelago of 18,000+ islands spans 3,500 miles below Singapore and above Australia. The culture on Bali is Hindu and the people are considered Asian. Second, I design all the jewelry, but I do not do the hand-fabricating myself. The very fine embellishment with tiny gold spheres is called granulation, and it is done with the utmost skill by my goldsmiths, who are Balinese craftsmen that are descended from Royal Court artisans of ancient Javanese Hindu-Buddhist kingdoms. They adhere the tiny granules of gold without solder – just using a sticky vegetable gum infused with copper powder, and then applying a large, slow flame to create a melting point at which the two surfaces of the gold ball and the plate fuse together. They use the same technique and similar tools as the ancient Egyptians, who first invented the technique, did 5,000 years ago.

    Again, thank you for choosing to feature me on your website. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me. Best, Carolyn

  2. I really like this website it has helped me so much with my art course this year. I currently need to research two jewellery designers to write essays on. For my contemperary designer, I have chosen Carolyn Tyler- I find her work so inspiring and would really like to know more. If you know of any websites which have useful information about her biography I would really appreciate the links. I’m struggling to find exact dates and her life background. much appreciated

  3. Such beautiful jewelry! And for a good cause at the same time. Thank you for sharing this and so much more!

  4. I love Carolyn Tylers designs and she uses local craftsmen. I love so many different types of jewellery from John S Brana’s organic, nature inspired designs in copper and aluminium to more traditional pieces in gold and silver.

  5. It is a very unique collection of jewelry. The interesting thing to note is the inspirations that Tyler’s used to conceptualize the various designs.
