Graced by Charis Karas
Hello and thank you for visiting my shop! I love to design, create, and share beautiful jewelry. Everything in my shop is handmade by me with the utmost care and attention to detail.
A few things about myself:
My first name is Charis, or as people used to mispronounce "Carrots". "Charis" means "grace" in Greek and has always been such a defining part of my identity and life. I married into the last name Karas. My first name is pronounced exactly the same as my last name (even though the spelling is entirely different.) My name has been mispronounced forever. The most common mispronunciation was "carrots", so the shop's name is a bit of a play on that.
I began making jewelry when I was about fourteen. I took a few years off from jewelry crafting as school and work took over throughout college. About five years ago, I finally decided to pick my hobby back up and turn it into a business. Since then, I have been thrilled, touched, and humbled by the customer attention and feedback I have received. As a mama of two, it is such an amazing gift to be able to share my creative outlet with the world! I am loving every minute of it.
Holistic healthcare, natural home/beauty products, and whole foods nutrition have been long-time passions of mine. I love that my diffuser necklaces allow myself and my customers to stylishly benefit from the power of essential oil everywhere, everyday. If I can help anyone heal, my ultimate goal is achieved.
