Kara is a self-taught silversmith. Her jewelry is inspired by the American Southwest where she sources the majority of her stones. She loves to use large unique pieces of stone and create contrast with the silver by oxidizing portions to really make the details pop. She creates wearable art with her large statement pieces that blend seamlessly into daily life in the PNW. Most days you will find her working away in her home studio in SE Portland with their rescue bullterrier snuggled up next to the heater.
