My name is Karen Weston and I have had a lifelong love affair with creating things by hand. I have always loved duplicating something I like that is ready-made by systematically figuring it out and making it from "scratch"! What a sense of accomplishment that brings!! It all started at age 6, when I would sit by the hour hand sewing on a piece of cloth on my lap, only to discover that I had inadvertently sewed it to my skirt!

Almost all of the hardware in my jewelry is handcrafted by me -- handwired bails, handwired cord ends, and handcrafted hook and eye clasps. I love the Japanese technique of Mokume Gane as it is applied to clay, and creating necklaces, cuff bracelets, earrings, and buttons with clay adds so much joy to my life!!

Thank you for your interest in my creations, for you are the reason I am here -- hoping that something I make with my own two hands will bring joy to the purchaser -- something unique for yourself or as a gift for a loved one.
