About Us

Hello Gorgeous!

I'm so happy to have you here!  Thank you for your interest and jumping into my Sparkly Journey!

I'm Kara, Owner & Designer behind KaraMarie Jewelry. I live in Wisconsin, with my amazing husband Mark, and our two beautiful kiddos, Griffin and Ruby!

I absolutely LOVE fashion, shoes, traveling, and anything and EVERYTHING sparkly! Since I was a child, creativity lurked around every corner, whether it was sewing, coloring, sculpting, or my favorite – making jewelry! My favorite memory, and where it all began, was when I was in grade school, my Dad used to take me to this really cute Bead Store in downtown Milwaukee - Betty's Bead Bank - on the weekends, and we would hunt for unique stones, beads, crystals, and we would make jewelry together. Basically the rest is history, but I am self taught, and have played around in many different materials and techniques - resin, wire wrapping, stitching, and so much more!

My desire, fueled by intense passion and unbridled creativity has turned into a reality and here we are! I founded KaraMarie in 2010, offering handmade jewelry, crystallized gifts + shoes, and more all made with the highest quality crystals - as I am an approved designer with access to the best Austrian Crystals!!

The jewelry I make represents me as an artist. I take pride in it being eye-catching, unique, bold, and fun. I am inspired by color and the beauty of crystals and how brilliant they reflect light. Their sparkle emits an energy that ignites my creativity and allows me to design stunning works of art. My ultimate motivation is creating something that stands out, and makes women feel confident and empowered. This is my passion and I absolutely love what I do!

Thank you for your interest! Welcome to the Sparkle Family!

Sparklingly Yours, 

Designer & Owner - Kara Yearling
