Karen Yowell's Profile
I am a former computer lab manager gone gaga for jewelry making!
In 2002, after many years of left-brain activity ruling, I decided to find a "hobby" that did not include installing RAM, troubleshooting systems, writing documentation, or other "techie" things that had absorbed my work and home life for the previous two decades.
I have always loved jewelry and can remember as a child filling my fingers with rings of all kinds--often from the gumball machine--and never being so happy as when I had all fingers covered! Combining that joy with a life long love of rocks and their properties, I began making my own jewelry, though, I have become a bit more discerning in the quality of the "rocks". I don't know about you, but I don't feel completely "dressed" when leaving the house unless I have a full complement of jewelry...
