A Personal Q&A With Chau, Co-Founder Of CA Souls
"Every piece has a story behind it and as we make the jewelry, we catch a glimpse of those stories."
How would you describe CA Souls to someone who doesn’t know?
A unique and fun piece of jewelry or accessory that carries a special message and is perfect for everyday wear.
What’s the best part about your job?
I wear different hats and get to do many different things. However, what I enjoy the most is making a customized piece and seeing how an idea comes to life. The finished products always come out different and unique in their own ways because the customers’ ideas are incorporated into the production process. Every piece has a story behind it and as we make the jewelry, we catch a glimpse of those stories.
What’s your favorite customer story?
It is hard to pick a favorite story…I think a recent order that stood out to me was a gift from a wife to her husband with a quote from his late father who recently passed away. The quote says “The sun is shining, the birds are singing, it’s a beautiful day”. She had it engraved in Morse code on a necklace for him. I think it is such a beautiful way to remember a loved one and also a reminder that we should wake up every day appreciating and enjoying this beautiful life.
"I think everyone should have a “Badass” bracelet or necklace."
What is your signature jewelry piece?
For the ladies, it would be the Ann bracelet with a message in Morse code and a birthstone.
What piece of jewelry can you not live without?
It is my Cara bracelet that says “Sonia” - my daughter’s name in Morse code.
The most popular piece to give to your friends?
I think everyone should have a “Badass” bracelet or necklace.
