            hite sand, blue water, golden sunsets, silver                Carolyn Campbell Brigman
            moonrise…these are some of the inspirations for
            the new jewelry collection by designer Carolyn
Campbell Brigman. Brigman is the owner of Sarah
Carolyn at McCaskill & Company, a jewelry boutique in
Destin. The shop carries moderately priced jewelry created
by local and international designers, complementing the
high-end pieces offered by Brigman’s parents, Elizabeth
and Bill Campbell, owners of McCaskill & Company.
     Brigman grew up in the jewelry business. “I think
I started out making friendship bracelets as a child,” she
says. “Once I opened my own shop and started working
directly with designers, I became inspired again to create
my own pieces. I studied the mechanics of jewelry-making
and debuted the Sarah Carolyn Collection a little over a
year ago.”
     Brigman works in gold-fill and sterling silver, crafting
her pieces from pearls and semi-precious gemstones. The
true beauty of the collection, however, lies in the designer’s
ability to customize any piece to suit any taste. “Originally,
I focused on bridal jewelry since my designs can easily
incorporate certain colors or styles. I love working with
brides to create just the right necklaces or earrings to fit
the personalities and styles of her bridesmaids,” she says.
Brigman quickly realized that her unique, customized
jewelry designs were perfect for a variety of occasions from
birthdays to graduation, from anniversaries to celebrating
the birth of a new baby. “I can work with any style and
almost any budget,” she says. “Most of my pieces sell for
$45-$200, depending on the stones I use.”
     At press time, Brigman was working on a special
commission very near to her heart. She was creating
jewelry for her own bridesmaids in preparation for her
wedding to Todd Brigman. After all, what better way to
mark one of life’s most significant milestones than with a
piece of jewelry from the Sarah Carolyn Collection?
