Karen Hathaway

My name is Karen Hathaway and I am the creator of Talking Stones Jewelry. The name “talking stones” is a reference to the feeling we have all had when walking on a beach or riverbank, and a stone catches our eye. Something about the color or shape or size or texture makes you pick it up, hold it, turn it over in your hand, and maybe slip it into your pocket to take home.

Each piece of my jewelry is one of a kind and starts in the same fashion. I let my beads speak to me and place the colors or shapes or sizes that in that moment feel right together, into an antique wooden bowl. Nothing is laid out or designed in advance. With the bowl on my lap, I string the creations that you see. I do hope a piece speaks to you. It has been my privilege and honor to participate in The Oldfield Show for over 20 years. Thank you for your support of all of the amazing artists represented and until we can be together, please be well. I’m sending big, virtual hugs to all.
