Four Generations of Love — A Story
Carolily is rooted in love. It took four generations of love, passed down from mother to daughter, to bring our handcrafted jewelry company to life.
The Carolily story begins with a prim, ladylike woman with little white gloves and a smart hat and purse. Lily was a small but mighty Englishwoman who “did not take guff from anybody.” We are inspired by her beauty and fierce elegance every day.
Her daughter, Carol, brings us to the next generation in our story. Carol was an extraordinary woman with incredible creativity and talent. Her loving and skillful hands found delight in her sketchbook and garden; her nimble fingers even helped sew the coronation gown for Queen Elizabeth II. As intelligent as she was beautiful, Carol’s love imbibes everything we do.
Our tale next brings us to her daughter, our co-founder Donna. Like her mother, Carol, Donna is gifted with immense creativity and a passion for artistry and craftsmanship. As the design visionary behind Carolily, Donna finds inspiration in women and the natural world around her. With her joyful laugh and playful spirit, Donna invites us all to delight in life’s wonders.
Our co-founder Danielle brings us to the fourth generation in the Carolily story. A woman of tremendous strength and determination, Danielle’s hard work and entrepreneurial spirit is matched only by her kindness and compassion. Her confidence, loyalty and passion for helping others are all part of how she shows her love for the Carolily family.
In 2015, Donna and Danielle Scheven embarked on a zany mother-daughter adventure. The duo created a jewelry company, Carolily, and began sharing their family’s love with women across Canada and around the world.
