Karhma’s Jeweled Creations began when I decided to use old knitting needles as hair wands. From that moment on I started taking apart old jewelry and then using wire to attach the stones and beads to the cut off knitting needles. People would ask me where I got them and I would sell them the one right out of my hair or make them one in colors they liked.

After that it was a short step to creating other jewelry…for people, pets and even to adorn spinning wheels!

My first tiny studio was located in the middle of a forest, at the base of the Cascades, in the Pacific Northwest. Sitting at my table surrounded by windows and cats I would watch the forest creatures go about their daily lives, listen to the rippling creek down in the gully and get inspiration from the incredible changes in weather that happen here.

It can be hailing while the sun is shining brightly making it look like tiny rainbows falling from the sky.

I've always been a "junk" hunter and an environmentalist along with rescuing cats...so taking items that would otherwise go to the dump or by the wayside and repurposing them came naturally to me. I'd find a necklace or bits of leather and make jewelry. Or I'd use my Dad's old watch parts to make jewelry long before Steampunk was even a term.

Guess that's enough about a middle aged tree-hugger! Thanks for checking out my little shop.
