Karen Daniels, the creator of Tess Jewelry, currently lives in St. Louis, MO, and grew up on a farm in Illinois.

On the farm she craved the city life and the fashion scene.
In the city she craved the outdoors and the ease of farm life.

After retiring from 20 years of working in fashion, the outdoors once again took over…..hiking, biking, skiing! Nothing in her jewelry box seemed to work.

That fueled her creative juices and Tess Jewelry was born.

Tess pieces are comprised of real pearls, wrapped in suede and knotted into lavish strands. Karen adds turquoise, carved wooden beads, bone, quartz and other natural findings that make each creation one-of-a-kind. Layering strand after strand, dressing yourself in elegant pearls.
