Rockhound, gem addict, and detective: These words aptly describe Karin Luvaas. Karin feels that every rock has a secret just waiting to be revealed. Never without my loupe and flashlight, she's 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. Karin hopes her customers, in turn, find something exquisitely, uniquely their own waiting for them in her offering.
