Designer Interview

Caitlin Mociun: "Humans have always had a desire to adorn themselves (so it seems from our history!). Humans use symbols like jewellery to identify things about other people."

What’s your background?

A California native, I began traveling at the age of 12, spending six years living throughout Asia and Europe, with extended stays in Malaysia and Prague, before earning a BFA in textiles at the Rhode Island School of Design.

Did you always want to be a jewellery designer?

I did not. When I was younger, I wanted to be a fashion designer. Which I did professionally (also under the name Mociun) for 6 years. When I was doing that I really wanted to get back into a fine art and installation art practice but it was easy for me to make and sell clothing so that is what I did, I did not enjoy it. When I started experimenting with jewellery, I felt happy and content with that practice.

You characterise yourself as a curator and a creator, in which ways?

I would say a creator first and a curator second. I design all the jewellery that we sell at Mociun and I act as the creative director for the company. Which means I do most of the styling for our photoshoots (along with one of my long-time employees who also does our photography and all our digital content and IG). I also curate the selection of home goods along with my buyer in our store in Brooklyn/online store.

You use unique gemstones; can you tell me about the sourcing of them?

I have worked very hard over the years to find the right sources of gemstones for my work. Not only am I looking for beautiful and unique stones but who we buy from is also important to me. I do my best to know as much about the materials that I buy as possible. We have found a number of sources that also care about the environment and the people who mine and cut stones. I always go to them first before I use our sources that do not have sustainability as a large part of their practice.
