Featured Shop - Karen Young Jewellery

Our next Featured Shop is by Karen Young who makes the most beautiful jewellery.
I asked Karen if she could tell us a bit about herself and how she came to be running a highly successful jewellery business.

I always had a fascination with jewellery and gemstones that started as a child.  However, my passion for making and creating  took a back seat as I built a successful career in Financial Services for 12 years in central London.

Soon after the birth of my second son, I took a step back from my corporate career to spend more time with my two beautiful boys.  I have also been able to use this opportunity to reacquaint myself with the wondrous process of designing and making beautiful pieces of jewellery and working with gemstones.

My jewellery is  fabricated from silver (Sterling, Fine and my absolute favourite Argentium Silver) with the occasional accents in 18 and 24ct gold.
  I use high-quality precious, and semi-precious gemstones and freshwater pearls, which are all hand-selected by myself, to embellish and complete my jewellery designs.

My distinctive and versatile designs are heavily inspired by intricate and unusual textures and form found in nature and each piece is simple, modern and effortless to wear. I meticulously craft each piece by hand using both traditional and modern silversmithing tools and techniques, and transform precious metals and gemstones into unique and enduring mementos to be treasured, loved and shared.

Sneak peek at Karen's fabulous new collection 

Karen lovingly designs and crafts each and every piece of her distinctive and elegant Handmade Jewellery in her London studio using traditional jewellery making techniques. I think that the care taken in the process shines through with these wonderful, original designs.

Karen is active across all the media channels and has been using Instagram to show off her new collection as it launches.  Be sure to follow her so that you get the latest information! 

The new collection will be posted on Facebook including a competition with the chance to win a piece from the collection on Tuesday, 6th November!
