Hello I’m Karen, welcome to my store.
I started making jewellery seriously back in 2012 as a stress relief and started to sell in 2018. During lockdown times my creativity has been rather variable depending on stress levels but I now feel I’ve reached a level of balance again and creativity is once more flowing.
My inspiration comes from many sources - I love creating texture so draw upon natural landscapes such as the moor and coastline near to my home. I also love art so painters and sculptors have a heavy influence. Not getting to many exhibitions in 2020 has been tough, thank goodness for galleries getting creative with videos and even better now we are able to start getting out again inspiration is flowing from more directions!!
I focus on earrings, pendants, bracelets and brooches; with earrings I make multiples of similar patterns with occasional one-off designs.
My pendants, bracelets and brooches are mainly all one-off designs as I love to make unique creations. Creating helps me manage my mental health and I fundraiser for MIND - 10% of all sales are donated to the charity
I work predominantly with sterling silver and all larger items over 7.78 grams are hallmarked - I am registered with the London Assay office.
2021 will see some new work combining silver and copper as I continue to explore textures and new techniques.
Thank you for looking at my designs, do get in touch if you have questions or would like to discuss a design, I love making unique pieces for people 😊
