Kara Clarke opened her Tumbled Earth Studio Boutique on May 1 in Kimberley.

“It happened very organically . . . I have been making jewelry for almost a decade out of my home and selling it at markets, retail stores and online,” said Clarke. “But it felt like it was time to get a more public space for my studio. It’s worked really well for customizing pieces for my clients as I have all my tools, chain, stone and charm options on hand. Every time I walk into my studio I smile and giggle to myself—I love what I do!”

Necklaces are lined up and hanging on a wall. Many have charms and smooth river stones.

Inspired by a love of nature, Kara Clarke often includes smooth river stones in her jewelry. — Kara Clarke photo
