About KarmicStar

Sales 599
On Etsy since 2015

Hello and Welcome ...

My name is Karina, and together with my husband, Michael, we are the “Kar” and the “Mic” of Karmic Star (the Star is for our daughter). We create artisan jewellery for people who are seeking unique and thoughtfully handcrafted treasures that are made with attention to detail, high quality materials, and positive intentions. From our hearts and hands to yours, we want our treasures to be the ones you reach for time and again because they make you feel amazing!

I am the jewellery artisan, and all of my creations begin as Australian-made 100% recycled Sterling Silver wire and sheet. From this I make every component - settings, chain links, clasps, earring hooks - so you can be sure that each Karmic Star treasure is as individual as you are. Mike is the lapidary artisan, carefully and intuitively transforming rough stones into the shiny polished cabochons that are the centrepiece of our very special collection of collaborative Pendants.

Stones and crystals are the most wonderful materials to work with - to us they are so much more than simply inanimate objects, they are intriguing and beautiful to behold, and they all have their own unique energy. We take great care in selecting the stones that we use in our creations, choosing to source from local dealers and fossickers as much as we possibly can, because we love to hear the stories behind them just as much as we love to support other small businesses.

We adore what we do, and imbue that joy into everything we make. Whether you are seeking something meaningful for yourself, or a special gift, we hope that you will find a Karmic Star treasure that speaks to your soul.

Thank you for taking the time to find out a little about us - we would love to connect with you on the usual social media suspects :

*As per my Shop Policies, buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply*

IMPORTANT: UK and Canadian customers please read

As mentioned above and in my Shop Policies, customs charges and import taxes are the responsibility of the buyer. UK and Canadian Customs charge a duty on items valued over a certain amount entering their countries, which must be paid by the purchaser. This value threshold is quite low, so if you have any concerns, please investigate prior to purchase.

Care instructions

Metal in all jewellery will tarnish over time - it's a natural process of oxidisation, and Sterling Silver can be brightened by gently wiping with a silver cloth.
Do not use chemical cleaners, and do not wear your jewellery while showering, swimming or exercising. Never spray perfume directly on your jewellery, or put on your jewellery too soon after applying body creams/oils.
This not only applies to the metal but more importantly the stones as some are softer (need more care from knocks and scratches) and some are more porous (can soak up oils/fragrances and discolour).
Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight or extreme heat, which can cause some stones to fade.
No refund/exchange can be given on damage caused by not heeding the above

About my Eco Sterling Silver

I proudly use 100% recycled Sterling Silver in my designs, manufactured by a local company who have the most up-to-date and eco-friendly production methods available.

Why I Oxidise my Metal

You may have noticed that I oxidise all of my Sterling Silver jewellery : I do this because I absolutely love the depth and character that it gives to my pieces, and also because I want my jewellery to stand the test of time. All Sterling Silver jewellery will tarnish, it’s a natural process, but I used to get so disappointed to see my shiny silver pieces turning dull grey. By adding patina, the eventual dulling on the polished high-points of each piece is less noticeable (and can be revived with a quick wipe of a jewellery cloth). And the more you wear your Karmic Star treasure, the more it will become part of you – it will get shinier where it touches your skin.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All my packaging is sustainable, biodegradable and/or recycled : all my pieces are presented in a Karmic Star gift box, made from recycled cardboard that is lovingly hand-stamped and folded by me, and wrapped with biodegradable jute ribbons. Even the fluff that keeps each treasure safe inside the box is made from eco-friendly non-GMO corn, and is biodegradable
