It’s hard to believe, but on a beautiful Fourth of July weekend in 1994, Bill and I said “I do” in the presence of our families at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. Everything was perfect, just as I had imagined, and that’s really all I could do is imagine given that I had never been there and this was pre-internet! All I could do was refer to the brochure, trust my wedding contact at the hotel, and pray for good weather! In a way, I think that made the experience more magical for me. I didn't know until I walked through the door what the hotel... Continue Reading

As we reach the official start of summer, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with you on QVC! I’m reviewing the product line-up today, which always gets me pumped up!!! I’ve been busy designing for February 2015, so it is exciting to reconnect with my June designs. I had forgotten how fun, fresh, and colorful these pieces are!
It wouldn’t be summer without Sleeping Beauty turquoise, and there are some very special new pieces coming up. And for all of those summer special occasions, there’s a collection with a fresh take on pearls.&n... Continue Reading

Looking forward to some Summer fun? I know that I am! Even though Summer may not literally mean the same freedom from schedules, alarm clocks, dress codes, and curfews that it did when we were kids, there is still something freeing about this season! The freedom to dress a little more casually, or maybe even a little more girly. The encouragement to show a little more skin, the necessity of a pedicure much more frequently, and the justification to buy that adorable SPF 50 floppy hat in the resort gift shop!
Summer for many of us brings back memories of family gathering... Continue Reading

Easter is very special to me. It is a time of rebirth, new beginnings and hope. It was my Grandma Dooley’s favorite holiday. My Grandma lived for her family, and treasured her “ladies” as she called the many women who were welcome to walk right through her unlocked door with their sewing needs. My Grandma was a gifted seamstress, and this is how she made her “pin” money, as my mom calls spending money. On Easter, this money went to buy all 18 grandchildren a special box of candies from the Fanny Farmer store at the mall. This... Continue Reading

I am so excited about my Today’s Special Value!!! I just finished pulling the clothes that our lovely models will wear throughout the day. It was a blast playing with all of the colors in the closet. From neutrals, to pastels and brights, this bracelet is always right!
The three gemstone choices are each set with a faceted quartz on top, which creates a gorgeous luminosity! The sea foam beauty of the turquoise accents all of the colors you would see under the sea! I love it with browns as well. Of course the mother of pearl choice is always perfect,... Continue Reading

Wow, this has really been tough! You are such a part of my world, and keeping all of my new designs under wraps until now has been excruciating!! After all, how do you keep your juiciest secrets from your best friends?!! Being a February baby and growing up in Minnesota, I have always been ready to celebrate spring in February! And this week, as we are digging out of more snow in most areas of the country, I am more ready than ever! I love spring for its feeling of hope, joy, new beginnings, a fresh start, and C...

I am a strong believer in serendipity. In my life, I have been fortunate to be faced with both obstacles and opportunities that have guided my journey in unexpected ways. As one of four children raised by a single mom, it was a fortunate necessity that I get creative and resourceful if I wanted new clothing, my first snow skis, or a new bike. My mom and I designed my clothing, and she brought them to life late at night at the sewing machine. I worked on my cousin’s farm until I was old enough to work at the local department store. There I met my first professional mentor, Dixie, who took... Continue Reading

It’s my final Carolyn Pollack show of the year!!
So it has got to be FABULOUS, right? On October 11th, as part of the prestigious Sterling Designer Gallery, I will be celebrating my favorite season with one hour of ALL NEW styles at 9:00am! I love this season for so many reasons, but especially for the rich colors and lush fabrics of fall fashion. Chunky sweaters and textured patterns call for bigger, bolder jewelry and saturated gemstones! This show will have beautiful new gem choices to accent the season’s must have wardrobe palettes. Check out my Pinterest boards for some... Continue Reading
