For approximately 15 years, I have been creating and designing handmade jewelry. About a year ago, I turned my hobby into Kari’s Kreations, because I had numerous people ask me where they could purchase my jewelry. My love of beading began while on vacation at my grandmother’s home in northern Minnesota, one of my very favorite vacation spots where we normally enjoy hiking, boating and fishing. However, this time, it had been raining half of the week and my mother and I were getting cabin fever. We went into town to go shopping and found a bead store where we purchased beads to make a few bracelets and fill our afternoon. Since then, I have spent hundreds of hours creating unique pieces of jewelry.

Each piece is one-of-a-kind combining contemporary design with a variety of colors and textures. I offer beaded necklaces, bracelets, watches, earrings, bridal jewelry, beaded bookmarks, beaded wine glasses, beaded wine dresses and greeting cards. All jewelry is made with quality items and close attention to detail.

Check out the many designs to find something for every outfit! Special orders can be accommodated within seven business days, so you can have a beautiful piece of jewelry for every occasion!
In the “Gallery of Designs,” you will find many pieces that have already been sold to show you the wide variety of designs possible. I will not make two identical pieces, but if you would like something similar, you can e-mail me and I will do my best to create a piece just for you! Every piece is made with care in hopes that it will bring joy to the person wearing the art!

I use the best quality beads in a variety of mediums to create my designs. Some beads are purchased overseas to get the best possible price and quality while others are found locally in the United States.
I have many shows and festivals in the Sioux Falls area. Check out the “Events” page to see when I will be near you!
