About Shimmy Bracelets
Who we are
We create colorful jewelry that reflects our love for the ocean and nature in general. When I talk about "we", I refer to my beautiful team of artists and silversmiths from Bali, Indonesia, who are the heart of Shimmy, and me as the founder. The women in Medewi, who craft every single bracelet with love, the silversmiths who always realize my design ideas for playful buttons, charms and stunning upcycled sea glass jewelry.
Hi, I am Carolin.
From a hobby to empowering financially challenged women. It didn't take me long to realize the potential my hobby had when some women in Medewi village approached me curiously and asked how much I'd pay them for crafting a bracelet. Empowering women and helping the local community by creating and selling unique ocean jewelry just seemed right and is what Shimmy is still standing for today.
I moved Germany to Bali 11 years ago and still love the island, with all its beauty and flaws. I started with Shimmy Bracelets 6 years ago and developed my creative hobby into a beautiful fair brand. A creative mind and a wish to always give back were within me, but Bali gave me the inspiration to realize my visions.
As a surfer and mom, I find a lot of inspiration in the ocean and in my love for my children.
