Karen of kbykaren.etsy.com is today's featured artist for the 90 features in 90 days challenge....... Karen claims to be a simple girl with dreams of being a jewelry designer in Paris. She is inspired by life experience and daily beauty she observes in Paris. Watch out: Kareen Kjelstrom is a girl with a blow torch. She uses it to melt and shape glass and sterling silver into jewelry designs that also build bridges between cultures. Born in Hawaii and raised in California, Kjelstrom grew up on the Pacific Ocean. (Her mother is Tahitian). Kareen's 2007 Titaua (Tee-tao-ah) collection features fine Italian glass beads and sterling silver that echo the artist’s Polynesian heritage and bring it into a sophisticated and breezy European sensibility.
HandKrafted designs are her specialty. Her work is unique as well as beautiful! In visiting her Etsy. store you will find earrings, bracelets, cuff links and necklaces.
