Karen has over 20 years’ experience in the jewellery trade, she is a graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design and has worked for several jewellery companies in Scotland, Canada and Holland. In 2012 she established her Jewellery business in her home town of Dundee in Scotland.

Karen is a Goldsmith who draws inspiration for her jewellery from all aspects of life, songs, stories, and the magic to be found in the everyday and her work focuses on universal storytelling symbols, such as locks, keys and hearts; encouraging the wearer to infuse the piece with deeper meaning and wear their stories as they wear the jewellery.


Karen’s work has been exhibited nationally including at 100 Jewels for 100 Women in 2021. Devoted to traditional jewellery making techniques, each of Karen’s pieces are designed and handcrafted in her workshop and she enjoys creating wearable Jewellery which is individual, interesting to look at and heirlooms of the future.


Karen is also an experienced Jewellery tutor who is passionate about passing on her jewellery making skills and the  experience she has gained. Karen teaches all skill levels, both one to one tuition and group part-time jewellery making classes, as well as mentoring Jewellers in Jewellery Business best practice.
