Powell River's Own Local Artist Shop

Karin Birch


My designs and creations begin when I look around at the intricacies of nature. I then incorporate these images from the earth and sea into my handcrafted, one-of-a kind art jewelry. By cutting and polishing most of my stones (not the facet-cut laboratory ones), I try to avoid importing from overseas.  Most of my stones are from parts of North America.  I use recycled precious metals and avoid blood mined metals and stone as much as possible. My involvement with the ‘ethical metal-smiths’ group enables me to source the most ‘green suppliers available, leaving the lightest footprint possible.

I hope you enjoy my small wearable art.
