The Creation Process

One-of-a-kind tourmalines, uniquely hand-cut stones, striking patterns, and bold shapes make Karin's pieces easy to recognize. Everything is expertly handcrafted in the Pacific Northwest, where the natural beauty fuels and inspires her. Integral to Karin's creative process, the natural world is expressed in her work and passed on to you.

Materials

Rockhound, gem addict, and detective: these words aptly describe Karin. Every rock has a secret just waiting to be revealed. Never without her loupe and flashlight, Karin's in constant pursuit of the perfect gemstone or material for her jewelry. The chase is as much as part of the craft as the creation process. Karin hopes you'll find something exquisitely unique too.

About the Designer

A deep understanding of the full intricacies of jewelry creation - including design, lapidary, hand fabrication, CAD, 3D printing, casting, and stone setting - is integral to her creative process. Performing these steps by hand allows her to center her daily life around the intimate nuances of creation. An endless variety of stone material takes center stage in all her work and serves as a constant source of inspiration.
