About Karin/Textur Haus
My name is Karin and this is my little shop - here's my story. A few years ago, I noticed that I wasn't finding the unique jewelry that I longed to wear and see in the market place, so I decided to design a few pieces and start my own line. Specifically, I wanted to make quality jewelry that I could wear and enjoy for years to come... pieces that were original and unlike everything else I was seeing...pieces that look well-traveled and tell a story.
My goal was to make jewelry that was uniquely me, and by doing so, I felt like I was tapping not only into my style narrative, but into the stories of so many women. Most women just don't fit into neat little categories, and neither should their jewelry. Expect to find one of a kind delights and small batch collections made of thoughtfully curated and sourced components that will tell your story and add textur to your life.
Why is my LLC called Textur Haus? Well, that's a good question because the word texture is not usually associated with jewelry, per se. But when you think about it, texture is what adds interest to items. It's why we always touch or pick things up when we look at them. Its the energy the things we love carry. It's what tells the story of a piece - and by extension, of a life well lived. Texture is not often perfect, but it IS always interesting. It seemed like a natural fit when I was looking for names, so I just ran with it.
I design and hand craft each piece in my home studio - in an artistic and tree-filled neighborhood in Dallas, Texas. At our house, we recycle, garden, feed birds, take care of our backyard wildlife, and don't use pesticides. Your jewelry is made in a happy home with two rescue dogs.
(My mother is German and I wanted to create a label reflecting my German heritage and to pay homage to the most influential woman in my life.)
