Meet K by Kareen on etsy
Meet Kareen of www.KbyKareen.etsy.com. She also has another website, www.KbyKareen.com.
Kareen says "handKrafted" jewelry designs are her specialty. She is a lampwork glass artist who uses a torch to melt her multi hued glass rods that come from Murano, Italy. Each bead is unique and is then incorporated with her handcrafted sterling silver pieces into exqusite jewelry.
"My mother is from Tahiti, so you will find that many of my pieces include blues and greens....coming nowhere close to the intensity of the colors in paradise", she further explains.
I've included two items from Kareen's shop.
Her Graphic Swank Necklace in Variegated Ocean has a retro feel.
Three handKrafted glass beads, colors variegate from light to dark. sterling silver wire (handformed and hammered) and sterling silver findings. accented with smoky quartz. sterling silver box chain (16", 18" or 20"; you specify) included. sterling silver "by Kareen" hallmark.
And her SouthWest Simple Earrings remind you of the colors of the South West.
Two handKrafted glass beads. sterling silver wire (handformed and hammered).
Hope you enjoy and visit her shop!
