When I first jumped on this crazy blog ride, I had a few people up here on the Sunny Coast who I were on my wish list to interview. The seriously talented Karina Jean Sharpe was firmly on that list... Back then I had just started on Instagram and Karina Jean Sharpe's feed was one of the first I started really following. I loved her perfectly proportioned and oh so beautiful vignettes paired with her meaningful words, and her being a local Sunny Coast designer was the absolute icing on the cake. I took the plunge and emailed her, thinking I would never hear back. How wrong I was! Karina was enthusiastic about what I was trying the achieve with the blog and extremely generous with her time for our interview - a truly beautiful soul.
At the time of the interview I remember her telling me about the necklace she was wearing (see above!), which was a prototype of a design she was "trying out". Well, yesterday Karina's design was given a humungous shout out on the iconic The Design Files - you can read all about how it evolved here!
A huge congrat's to the lovely Karina and, if you haven't already, I highly recommend checking out her Instagram feed, website and Karina Jean label - your creative side will sigh and smile... ;)
