A little bit retro, a little bit modern, and a whole lot cute, Hotcakes Design Jewelry puts whimsy into vintage Bakelite-inspired carved resin jewelry. Handmade in San Francisco, each piece is cast from molds designed by Caramia Visick. She started her company in 2000, when a stranger bought a bracelet she had designed right off her wrist.
The complete line now includes elaborate bracelets with carved roses, chunky beaded necklaces and gothic cameos, but it’s the rings and brooches with images that really caught our attention. Miniature pictures—featuring animals, sailing ships and even the Eiffel Tower—are encased under acrylic.
