A Message from Karen

"Growing up in Niagara Falls New York, I always had a flare for beautiful things. I spent my formative years perfecting my creative abilities for decorating and craft making and the art of wearing beautiful jewelry.


My love of jewelry and the ability to create would one day come together in a unique situation.


While working in a successful sales and marketing career, I was continually being complimented on my outfit and jewelry combinations.


 I realized my true passion was not only for wearing beautiful jewelry, but the joy in trying different ensembles and the realization that I could in fact design and make my own art a reality."
