My name is Karen Starbuck. First let me say I don't own any coffee shops!I am a retired nanny. Making jewelry started as a hobby then grew! I love designing and making jewelry. I find inspiration for my designs everywhere. Sometimes I find a pendant that inspires the design. Sometimes it is a strand of beads,a color scheme ,a place or a person . I am a wife,Mom,and grandma.My husband and I have been married since 1975. We have one beautiful daughter who is the mother of our three wonderful grandchildren! I am also a proud 2 time survivor of breast cancer. I beat it the first time in 1990 and again in 2004.I will be adding pink ribbon jewelry for breast cancer awareness here from time to time.I am happy to be on Art Fire . Thanks for your interest in my jewelry.
this picture jasper donut pendant is one of my favorites.It is called "picture" jasper because often the patterns in the stones look like little landscapes.
Multi color freshwater pearls and glass beads make up the dangles in this set.
The amethyst heart on this necklace became the picture on my business card!
this is my White Rabbit necklace. The pendant is a picture of the white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland . From the frame I put charms on chain that have to do with the story.There is a watch, heart, teapot and teabag. I made links and dangles from glass pearls.
