Metal clay jewelry, nature photography, and digital scrapbooking are Karen's passions. She is mostly self-taught, and enjoys sharing her knowledge with others.
Using her photos, Karen loves to create layouts in the digital world of Photoshop. Her layouts and albums become a diary of sorts, documenting milestones, recording happy times, and capturing the colors of nature.
Karen's most recent interest, artisan jewelry, adds creativity to her bead and pearl jewelry skills. Her new metal clay jewelry venture features fine silver, copper, and bronze. Karen sculpts and refines metal clay, then kiln fires her pieces and polishes them to perfection. The process allows for exciting interpretations of symbols, shapes, textures, and combinations of metals.
Please let Karen know if you stop by her blogs. She enjoys hearing from visitors and always replies to comments!
