Karen Hunter Jewellery
All of the jewellery is handmade by Karen at her home studio and workshop, and each piece is hand cut and formed. She also makes her own Niobium and Silver links. After all of the work is done to each piece of Niobium, it is anodized to create the colour.
The Niobium colours include: green, turquoise, blue, purple, fuchsia, pink, peachy pink, yellow, navy, dark purple and brown. Karen uses Niobium ear wires on dangling earrings and Titanium posts and butterflies, because of their hypoallergenic quality. The patterns on the metals are created with hammer marks and Roller Printing (putting the metal through a rolling mill against; paper, linen or other metal that has a texture, which transfers to the finished piece).
