Artist Karen Télio first discovered her passion for beads and precious metals during a trip to Asia. Karen was not looking for a new career at the time - she already had her hands full working as a neurosurgical nurse and raising 2 young children. What started simply as an interest, quickly turned into an obsession. It soon became clear that Karen had found her true vocation as a jewellery designer; there was no turning back.
Today, Karen's work is displayed in over 35 boutiques across Western Canada and she is currently in the works to expand to Eastern Canada.
