Karen Martin McCoun's Profile

About

I grew up in Riverside, CA with a dad who was a rock collector. My sister and I dug and lugged rocks from our rock hunting outings all over the US. I inherited many of the interesting stones that my dad cut and polished. So..after retiring from being an educator, I learned to be a silversmith and a wire wrapper to set these beautiful stones. I also work with beads, copper and brass to create a variety of bracelets, rings, pendants, earrings and more. My venture is named in my dad's honor: J for James Mar for Martin and K for me, Karen McCoun.
