Karen creates bold, playful, colourful jewellery from resin and silver. She’s inspired by linear shapes found in nature, and recurring patterns. We asked Karen to tell us a bit about her work.

Describe your work in 3 words
Colourful, tactile, weightless.

What inspires you?
I love the simplicity of both Japanese and Scandinavian design and botanical shapes. I really enjoy playing around with colour combinations.

If you weren’t a jewellery designer what do you think you would be?
When I was younger I wanted to be a vet as I love animals…but being squeamish is a bit of a drawback!

My big chunky file, I use it daily!

Someone like Natalie Portman as her style is understated and minimal so I think she’d really suit some bold colourful jewellery!Marianne Anderson Garnet Rings
