Karina Mattei has been a jeweler and designer for over 40 years, creating beautiful pieces of jewelry that capture the essence of the wearer.
Karina began as self-taught in a large, artistic family and broadened her training in college in Colorado. "As I reflect on my handmade jewelry over the last few decades, I enjoy seeing the jewelry evolve in style. To me it is journal-like, emulating the expansion of my environment and interests."
In past years Karina's work has been exhibited at N.W. Barrett in Portsmouth, NH, Quadrum Gallery in Chestnut Hill, MA, and the Greg Cartmell Gallery in Meridian, MS.
