About Karhu Moon
Karhu Moon came about through connections. My Native American and Finnish background created the name itself; Karhu meaning "bear" in Finnish and the concept of spirit animals being Native.
With the bear as my totem and the moon as my guide, I connected my two sides and developed the piece you see to the left, Karhu Moon.
I have been a metalsmith/jeweler for over eighteen years. It was my love of jewelry that started my journey at Arizona State University in the Fine Arts Metals program.
From there, I studied under and worked with the amazing Sharon Seggi of Studio S in Tempe, AZ. Her mentoring was invaluable and I miss her every day. After moving east I started Karhu Moon and began working on my jewelry in earnest.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy making it.
