Behind a perfectly weathered jeweler’s bench is Carla Morrison; goldsmith, designer and the inspiration behind one of the country’s most unique, fine jewelry houses. Carla began her journey at the age of twenty, when she took the increasingly rare path of apprenticeship, a path that requires both patience and a deep commitment to this lifelong pursuit. Carla’s early artistic talents prompted an invitation to work in collaboration with a studio in Portland, Oregon made up of renowned jewelers creating pieces for a discerning, international clientele. Carla’s perseverance led to her namesake Morrison-Rink Gallery, where she created her first collection and showcased the nation’s most up and coming jewelry alongside her own in-demand designs. In 1993, Carla made the move to Boulder, Colorado as the lure of a visually stunning setting seemed ideal to build her boutique jewelry house. It was in a converted barn in the historic district where Carla made the leap from silversmith to goldsmith moving from distinct craft galleries to Neiman Marcus stores. Today, Carla has built a team of the industry’s finest craftsmen, and together, they create small, but inspired collections and important jewel commission pieces for a dedicated following.
