Today we’d like to introduce you to Caitlin Stivaletta.
Hi Caitlin, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers.
I am originally from a small beach town in southern Maine and moved out to San Diego in 2007. I am a single mother of two boys and was an elementary school teacher in San Diego when the pandemic hit. I am one those highly sensitive, intuitive people and so I just knew that there were so many things wrong both in my career and what was happening in the world. It felt like the whole system was trying to take the life out of me and I wasn’t going to let it. I wanted to be happy. Just prior to this all happening I became aware of some unique spiritual gifts which is a long story for another day, but I began to work on my spiritual development and through that process of awakening I found the truth in Christ and realized that the only person who was going to save me from my own personal hell was me. I wound up creating a superhero alter-ego character to represent the best version of myself and then I named her after my favorite word, Felicity. I call her the “other” word.
Felicity is both the source and the experience of intense happiness and I wanted to literally embody it. The word felicity also means having the ability to find an appropriate style of expression for one’s thoughts and so here I am. I am trying to express my thoughts in a way that creates a reality that is my own version of heaven on earth. Felicity’s Bliss.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
The biggest challenge for me has been learning how to find the right balance between being creative while also being business minded. It forces me to use both sides of my brain. Organization and structure has never been a strength of mine but fortunately the struggle became the inspiration for one of my collections that I call Organized Chaos.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I call my jewelry “intuitive jewelry” because I hope it will inspire women to develop their own intuitive senses since that is how we get in touch with our authentic self and find Felicity. I specialize in Labradorite necklaces that are meant to remind women of who they truly are, that their intuition is their superpower and it’s super natural to be supernatural. We live in a world that rejects the unseen and I stand firmly against that. I chose labradorite to be the signature of my brand because it’s the stone of intuition, consciousness, and spiritual transformation, which is the total essence of all my collections.
In addition to necklaces, I also design what I call Bohemian Luxury style wrap bracelets. They are called the Bracelets of Submission because they were inspired by the mythology of Aphrodite, the Amazons, and Wonder Woman. Their symbol is that a woman’s true power is found in the vulnerability required to fully submit ones self to love. Each bracelet is custom made to order and they come in 3 sizes.
