About


Hello friends, my name is Karen, owner of Arken's Jewelry Box. Just to tell you a little about me, I started making jewelry for myself over ten years ago and like most of us I started out with the basics like stringing beads onto a piece of wire. As basic as that was I really enjoyed it and found hours could pass by and I wouldn't even notice.

The belief that money can be made while "playing" is awesome and worth its weight in gold!!!

So this store was a long time coming because I put it off for years and making my accounting job my priority. It has always been my intention to create a web based store in which to sell many different creations and Etsy is a perfect fit for me to do so. I am so thrilled to be a part of the thriving Etsy community with all the talented artisans here, and interesting shop names. It can all be so overwhelming to find a voice here but this place is so darn cool, wild horses couldn't drag me away!!!

Speaking of shop names, I'll tell you a little about the name I chose. I'm a little bit of a game geek (tee hee) and Arken has been my online game name for years. It's actually my name Karen switched up a bit and since its my alter-ego, without much thought Arken's Jewelry Box was the choice. Its me just a little bit cooler and interesting. :)
