Have you ever dreamed about retiring to a small piece of paradise and spending your time making beautiful things? It looks like Karen Mical turned that dream into a reality.
I found Karen’s stand at the Old Town Farmer’s Market in Puerto Vallarta Mexico which, while it might not be paradise, is pretty close by my standards.
Karen works in polymer and her jewelry was selling like mad. Small wonder. It was impeccably crafted and visually appealing.
I didn’t get to talk to Karen but her husband told me that they lived in Puerto Vallerta full time and that she was a regular at the market which requires that the vendors make their wares.
Karen’s color palettes evoke the tropics making one of her pieces a souvenir that does not advertise itself as such but that helps the wearer to remember a short time spent in paradise. What could be better?
