ABOUT THIS PIECE
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Karen Balliet works in sterling silver, copper, and gold, often combining the metals. Rolled hand sewn silks from Germany, cords wrapped with silk thread from Greece and deerskin leather are also used in her pieces. Karen’s designs take on a contemporary style with soft, organic shapes. She finds the creative process meditative, and she appreciates the basic forms found in nature that are irregular, imperfect and beautiful. She hopes my jewelry will remind others that it’s often the simple things in life and nature that bring us the most joy.
