The Creation Process

Our pieces are easily recognized by our selection of one-of-a-kind tourmalines, uniquely hand cut stones, sapphires, patterns, shapes, and ethically sourced diamonds. All of our pieces are expertly handmade in the beautiful Pacific North West where the beauty that surrounds our creation process fuels and inspires us. We like to think that a little bit of the natural beauty of the world is captured in our work and passed on to the wearers.

Materials

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 many 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 these steps, herself, by hand.
