Dree is bold, radiant and true spirit that Karo Koru aspires to be.
On my first photoshoot in Los Angeles some 14 years ago we had the luck to have Dree Hemingway as our model. Fate smiled on us when Dree joined our very first Karo Koru shoot. We've all grown since then but that spirit of firsts emanates through every frame we shot and the beautiful images speak of our quiet little history. It's a tribute to Karo Koru's spirit to stay honest, stay hopeful, and embrace our love and loyalty in the ways we all can.
Each piece of jewelry reflects my philosophy of being gentle on our planet. All the beads, pearls, glassware, are either recycled, dead stock, or repurposed to minimize additional environmental impact. We spend a lot of time and effort sourcing our materials. Estate sales, Vintage Jewelers, thrift stores, donations, and endless hours digging on the world wide web as we hunt for small treasures to craft our jewelry.
