About The Artist

Headshot_newKaren Young started designing and selling jewelry at a very young age.   Though her techniques and choice of materials have greatly improved over the years, her love of color, texture, shape, and luminosity has remained steadfast.   Karen works with many types of beads including precious and semi-precious stones, wood, pearls, gold and silver, and many others.

Her love and appreciation for the materials and the art of jewelry-making is illustrated in her work.  Her travels to places like Kenya, Indonesia, and India have influenced her jewelry in both design and choice of materials.  Karen also has a great love of nature from the mountains to the sea.  She is known to embrace blues, greens and turquoise, the calming colors of both the sky and water.  Karen’s jewelry ranges in price from $14.00 to $400.00 so that many people can enjoy wearing her pieces.
