Karen Thomas

Karen Thomas has been living & working in York for over 20 years. Her ‘Silver Shell Collection’ was inspired by natural forms seen & collected on long walks along the dramatic North East coastline. The collection includes four ranges the Spiral, Venus, Urchin & Abalone. Each piece is lovingly made in her workshop using solid sterling silver castings, made using moulds of actual shells.

The Venus Shells that Karen uses for her collection were collected a stones throw from our gallery, on Filey Beach.
