A fun fact that most people don't know about me is that my real name is Carla Wahnon, but I decided to use my husband’s last name, Shaw, as a symbolic way of saying “I do” one more time. Bill has always backed my passion and aspirations to succeed as an entrepreneur in the fashion industry and his support means the world to me.

The CARLA SHAW collection is exactly what I always envisioned; each piece is produced by hand, through a delicate process, and coated in hypoallergenic 18-karat gold, originating jewels of singular design and impeccable finish.

I live in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with my husband, Bill, and our two spoiled dogs Furby (almost 19-year-old Maltese) and Liam (6-year-old Silky Terrier mix).
