From large bronzes, to the iconic ‘Her Hippo‘, to the launch of the exquisite Zodiac Series

After years of sculpting large bronzes, Carolina Wickenburg parlayed her passion for sculpting and jewelry into creating distinctive, wearable works of art.  Known and appreciated by jewelry and art aficionados for her signature Hippo, which drew its inspiration from Taweret, ancient Egyptian protector of women and children, Carolina continues to draw from the worlds of  mythology, history and art in her most recent collection:  The Zodiac Series

The Zodiac Series

In this Series, Carolina interprets history, myth and lore in these stunning hand-made pendants, each with an interesting story to tell.  “My inspiration comes from ancient art in its various and remarkable forms; cave paintings, sculptures, antique coins, mythology. Even fossils inspire. These objects retain their history, which gives them meaning,” says Carolina.

The Zodiac series is offered in 18K and 14K gold, or Sterling silver, with a choice of finishes for bevels and jump rings. No machinery is used, rather each pendant is entirely hand sculpted to capture the warm, authentic handcrafted feel of ancient works. The name of the corresponding sign is hand-lettered in Greek along its border.

Pendants are available in two sizes: the large “Statement” size (1.3” diameter), or the “Everyday” size (1” in diameter).

“I love throwing them onto a simple necklace, and mixing them up with leather and beaded chains. The blackened silver coin with gold bevel is stunning coupled with turquoise or aquamarine. The gold pendant makes a statement against amber, coral and orange tones. Over a scarf, these pieces add color and interest” says Carolina

About Carolina Wickenburg

 Born in Havana, Cuba, Carolina immigrated to the US at an early age. She and her Austrian husband, reside in New York (when not traveling to the family hotel, Casa Mia, in Austria). They have two sons. As a successful NYC based architect hailing from a long line of artists (including world-renowned Alfred Wickenburg), and with a creative eye himself, her husband recognized Carolina’s talent and encouraged her to pursue art shortly after their marriage.

“ I prefer the warmth and authenticity of ancient artwork to the uniformity of modern-day machined product. For this reason, my work is sculpted entirely by hand rendering each piece unique. The distinct imperfections, minor nicks and scratches from the carving, a finger print or two, gives the individual pieces character and tells a story, ” Carolina Wickenburg
