Starlit Skies History

Our Jewelry

When I first started making Jewelry I was shy and not as confident as I am now so I called the business Caitlin's Crystal's and Creation's which was my name in the SCA, a medival group we were involved in at the time. I created my first catalogue on the Macintosh in 1988. However in 1990 when I started doing Renaissance Festivals I used the name STARLIT SKIES.

The name Starlit Skies came to me one day when I was doing a big drawing of a celestial sky, spending hours and hours drawing the little stars that represented the universe. I was 21 and was seriously in the manifestation mode for an opportunity in College. As if in a trance I pulled away from the large drawing engulfed in the Starlit Skies and I wrote the words on my wooden drawing board, using letters that were beneficial in numerology for business. I stated clearly in that moment, out loud, and to the universe that some day I would own a business and I would call it 'STARLIT SKIES'.

Starlit Skies has been displaying Jewelry Creations at Renaissance festivals since 1990 where we first began our history with Ren Faires at Scarborough Faire Renaissance Festival.

Our booth was built in Arizona at the Arizona Renaissance Festival in 1991.

We began our Journey at the Colorado Renaissance Festival in 1993.

We did participate at the Texas Renaissance Festival, in Houston for 4 years in the early 90's.

Then Spirit guided us to New England in 1994 where we began displaying our creations at King Richards Faire, in Carver Massachusetts, during the Fall seasons for 18 years

Our simple MOTTO is:

We add the Twinkling Touch.


Our Henna

Cynthia perfected drawing and Oil Paints by the age of 10, and studied Graphic design, illustration and advertising in College. Her greatest skill was pen and ink. As a full time Jewelry designer Cynthia missed drawing and began to paint Henna on the side in the year 2000. Now in the year 2011 she has redesigned her life where she is able to create her Jewelry Designs for 6 months out of the year, and then paint Henna for the other six months, which satisfies her soul and need to do both.

Starlit Skies is Grateful for the 23 years of  Happy Clients and returning customers who feel her love and generous creative forces. She looks forward to continuing to serve at the 3 Renaissance Festivals, AZ, TX, and CO with Her Jewelry and Suncatchers.

2011 we will be celebrating 12 Years of painting Henna at the Dona Anna Renaissance Festival in Las Cruces NM at Young Park. Now living in Las Cruces, NM, we look forward to more Festivals around Town in the Fall and Winter Months.


Starlit Skies goal is to serve, give, and be present for our customers making them Happy with our loving energy, our creations, and Art work. We want to help via our creations with Stone energies,  Color therapy, the drawings subject matter or just the simple fact that it makes someone feel good, feel more beautiful. Our practice is to love our creations, mindful of the energy when we create, and to be considerate of that thought, intention and love in the giving and sharing when we deal with our customers. While making jewelry we are mindful of the energy that we have around us, what we talk about, what we listen to or watch while we make the jewelry...for it is that loving intention that is felt when you walk into our shop, or hold our jewelry. Our Creations are our babies, and you adopt them. With Henna we create a loving environment in our booth where we pamper you with our loving vibe and great Art, creating not just a lovely Henna drawing to take with you but also a loving and fun experience that will stay with you for a long time.

We Thank You!
