Karen is a beadweaver and bead embroiderer, born on the West Coast of Scotland and for the past decade living and working from her home studio in North Shields.
Karen’s jewellery is wearable Art made using only the best quality Japanese seed beads, combined with hand dyed silk, Swarovski crystals, vintage and semi-precious stones. These are intricately interwoven into dramatic pieces incorporating organic themes and using vibrant but earthy colours.
Karen’s inspiration comes from many places: sometimes the beautiful coastline she live on, sometimes the colours and shapes of the beads before her.
