Rockhound, gem addict, and detective: These words aptly describe Karin Luvaas. She feels that every rock has a secret just waiting to be revealed. Never without her loupe and flashlight, she is in constant pursuit of the perfect gemstone or material for her jewelry. The chase is every much a part of the craft as the crafting itself. Every stone she finds is exciting, new, and unique. We hope our customers, in turn, find something exquisitely, uniquely their own waiting for them in our offering.
About the Designer
Inspired by color and natural gemstones, Karin Lee Luvaas's fine jewelry line incorporates design, lapidary, hand fabrication, CAD, 3D printing, casting, and stone setting. While others may outsource some of these steps, Karin believes a deep understanding of the full intricacies of jewelry creation from concept to completion is integral to her work. These are the pieces that make the whole. She therefore meticulously performs all of these steps, herself, by hand.
