The beginnings of Malt and Stone stemmed from a love for fashion, and a desire to make every woman feel her absolute best in her own skin by accessorizing with handmade earrings. Each earring was carefully designed and lovingly made by hand - with the intent of depicting how a woman should feel in the fashion world. This company is a representation of how our founder, Caitlyn, has evolved and continues to evolve throughout her entrepreneurship journey. Her love for creating and fashion continues to develop as she expands the Malt + Stone brand into a fashion brand and now as she grows her little family, she has ventured into a children's line.
