"When I first started traveling to Europe, I was immediately struck by the way art and design is such an immersive experience there. Influences from many different centuries are everywhere.
Buildings that are five feet apart in space may be separated by five hundred years in time. Taking all of this in, I began to sketch out new ideas for jewelry designs, using concepts and motifs I had never before considered. My first designs came out of visits to Paris, but soon I discovered central Italy as a vital source of new inspiration, its warm, rustic nature providing a natural contrast to the refined elegance of Paris.
What I have learned over the last two decades, or so, is that this is who I am as a designer, and this is what gives Christian Caine its unique identity." — Christopher
