Meet the artist & maker

Age 19 Karen turned down an art degree in favour of equine pursuits. As horses cost money Karen started working in finance. The horses made way for a family, and a need to “feed the soul”.

After a lifetime of observational art Karen retrained at York School of Jewellery.

Fast forward, Karen is now a maker/director of The Beautiful Splint Company (bespoke orthotic splints in silver) whilst also producing her highly distinctive range of jewellery.
