Carol’s jewelry designing began as an accidental attempt to make pottery. Twenty years ago, Carol took her first jewelry class at Wesleyan Potters. Over the years she has perfected her craft by attending numerous workshops in Connecticut and New York. Dorman enjoys the entire process of designing and making jewelry and tries to use the best materials to create pieces that will appeal to a variety of women. Carol is inspired by beautiful handmade lamp work beads, venetian beads from Italy, fresh water pearls, semi-precious stones and sterling elements. Carol’s jewelry is designed and carefully handcrafted in her studio in Old Lyme, Connecticut.
Dorman’s Jewelry Designs are currently available at Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook, Connecticut.
