About the Artist: Caitlin Kastner

Originally from the Midwest, Caitlin studied graphic design in Manhattan, Kansas. After a few years working in the advertising and non-profit worlds she eventually made her way to Portland, OR  where she lives and works as a jewelry designer alongside her husband, baby girl, and fluffy K-9, Gromit.

Poptone is a line of playful handmade jewelry, ever-seeking the quirky and joyful. It began in 2016 as a experimental side project and eventually became a delightful jewelry collection sold in boutiques, indie book stores, and museums across the United States. A combination of tiny hand-drawn artwork, transparent plastic, and resin gives the collection a unique and colorful three-dimensional style.
