homebasedstudio's Karen Limkriengkrai is originally from the small town of San Fernando, California. Her enthusiasm for painting, drawing, and mixed media established her curiosity towards jewelry design. Three years after she moved to Washington, what started off as just a hobby in making jewelry for her and her friends, soon kicked off reaching a larger crowd outside of the PNW making a name for her latina-operated business venture: homebasedstudio. Her love for creating soon moved towards a deeper passion for constructing pieces for other people and putting a smile on their face.
