Hello and welcome to Aguja y Clavo Jewelry.


My name is Caitlin and I’m the maker behind everything you see here.  


I started this business in 2016 after having lived abroad in Spain for three years. I came up with the name Aguja y Clavo (ah-goo-ha//ee//claw-voh) which translates to Needle and Nail in Spanish because I specialize in beadwork and metalwork.

I’ve taken classes both locally (New Mexico) and abroad (Florence, Italy), and I'm eager to learn as much as I can in order to bring you unique work. 

I love experimenting. I don't like to be constrained by size, technique, material, or design. I don't think that jewelry should be categorized by just one thing. I think jewelry is the most fascinating form of personal adornment and is something that should be explored by both the maker and wearer.


Thank you so much for your interest in my work, I hope we can connect and that you find something special for yourself.

Take care,
