Jewels
Jewels (also known as Karen East) has been beading for more than 20 years, and has been creating elaborate neck pieces using off-loom weaving techniques since the 1990s. In 2000, she moved to the thriving arts community of Homer, Alaska, in the U.S., and became involved in the local artists cooperative-run gallery, eventually buying the business in 2003. Since then, she’s enjoyed balancing her practical bookkeeping side with her creative beading side. She credits living in a beautiful and inspiring place for helping her keep all things in life in perspective.
