Karin on her works:
I collect real objects and images, seized from my daily surroundings. In fact, my studio is an endlessly growing collection of bits and pieces, both visible and invisible, that become parts of a map I keep updating and revising. My work is a treasure hunt among things and ideas finally fashioning into pieces of jewellery made to be desired, worn, questioned, or loved.
