Congrats to Karen Konzuk for becoming Western Living's Fashion + Jewelry Designer of the Year!
When I was living in Calgary, I was fortunate enough to photograph some of Karen's work (I shutter to think of what the images looked like! I was just a baby!). And from the shoot, I was even more fortunate to receive a pair of her earrings, necklace and ring. I love it all, and to this day, the ring is one of my favourite possessions. Every time I wear it, someone compliments me on it, with my reply of "one day, if I ever get engaged, I will just give him this ring to put a rock in it, and then he can give it back".
And I still think that.
So congrats to Karen and everything she has accomplished over the years. And if you are ever in need of some beautiful wearable art...check out Konzuk.
