We live in a truly magical world!

Karen brings a lifetime of curiosity and seeking to her creations. Karen has a degree in anthropology, worked in exploration geology and returned to university to become a chartered psychologist. She moved to England in 1995 where her work took her to many different countries. Now, in her jewellery she gets her inspiration from the colours, sights, sounds and symbols of the many cultures and countries in which she has lived, worked and traveled – Hawaii, England, Canada, the British Isles, western Europe, Greece, Morocco, Egypt, Lebanon and Syria, Nigeria and the far East: South Korea, Hong Kong and Singapore.

She has been drawn to make symbolic jewellery – wearable art – jewellery with a message. She creates pieces that inspire and encourage wearers to look beyond the physical to the symbolic and even spiritual meaning of the pieces they wear.

Bill grew up and lived most of his life in New Mexico. After attaining a graduate degree, Bill turned his attention to art. Bill has designed and made historically jewellery inspired by the designs of the ancient Celts, Saxons and Norsemen or Vikings. He has extensively researched the designs of the periods, spending many hours in the British Museum, the museums of Dublin and Edinburgh and Flagg Fenn in the UK, the Louvre, and the museums of Greece and Rome.

Now at 70 a lifetime of creative experience and spiritual seeking has coalesced into a line of jewellery and ceremonial tools fashioned of silver, bronze, amber and antler with natural crystals and gemstones.

Bill and Karen are always searching for rare and high quality stones, gemstone pendants, unusual “found objects” and materials with cultural and emotional significance. They create pieces from their own inspiration and also help clients trust their inner guidance to co-create custom designed pieces. They have a finely tuned sense of the energies of their pieces – creating with intention and attention.

Karen uses gemstone beads and carvings from around the world in the necklaces, earrings and bracelets that she designs and assembles.

Some of her pieces incorporate pendants designed and made by Bill. Many are designed to be power pieces for the wearer: for protection, to enhance focus, to attract abundance or to enhance intuitive and magical ability.

Karen uses only high quality gemstones, professional quality stringing materials and either sterling silver or vermeil findings.

We are delighted to be able to offer you our own creations here on Etsy as well as hand selected pieces you can use to create your own special pieces.
