For approximately 15 years, I have been creating and designing handmade jewelry. About a year ago, I turned my hobby into Kari’s Kreations, because I had numerous people ask me where they could purchase my jewelry. My love of beading began while on vacation at my grandmother’s home in northern Minnesota, one of my very favorite vacation spots where we normally enjoy hiking, boating and fishing. However, this time it had been raining half of the week, and my mother and I were getting cabin fever. We went into town to go shopping and found a bead store where we purchased beads to make a few bracelets and fill our afternoon. Since then, I have spent hundreds of hours creating unique pieces of jewelry. Each piece is one-of-a-kind combining contemporary design with a variety of colors and textures. I offer beaded necklaces, bracelets, watches, earrings, bridal jewelry, beaded bookmarks, beaded wine glasses, beaded wine dresses and greeting cards. All jewelry is made with quality items and close attention to detail.
