Karen has been strongly connected to nature all her life. From her days as a small child spent collecting rocks during family fishing expeditions in the mountains, to handcrafting beautiful gemstone bracelets with her three grandsons, Karen’s passion has remained present throughout time. The living energy, love and light found in the stones continue to inspire and guide Karen in all aspects of her life.
A devoted wife, mother, grandmother, friend and teacher, Karen endeavors to gather wisdom and inspiration from a variety of sources. She believes the soul is healed in the company of children; this belief is apparent in her longstanding career as an Education Assistant with the Calgary Board of Education and in her loving relationship with her three grandsons.
Karen has been fortunate to travel extensively throughout her lifetime. In 2009 she traveled to Malaysia, where she discovered the inspiring gift of meditation and Reiki, and there she experienced a spirituality that celebrates a multitude of faiths. In Kuala Lumpur, Karen’s love for gemstones was rekindled and, along with her daughter Anna, she discovered a treasure of gemstone beads, each stone a precious gift from earth. Gemstones fill Karen’s home, and she wears them in bracelet form, benefiting from the healing and beauty of each unique creation. Karen’s artistry reaches beyond natural healing and simple stones - she seeks to polish, bring together and honor the inherent value of each and every person she meets. This quality is strongly present in the beautiful bracelets she crafts from the heart.
It is her sincere wish to share the love and peace she feels in life and share it with you through their “Blest” products.
“We are all precious and handcrafted in love and meant to be happy in the spiritual light that surrounds us”
