Creative Entrepreneurship

Blue Apatite Jasper on Silver Plated Brass

Karen Holtz, a local artist at Soulstice Artisan Market will be featured with her husband Bob at Soulstice Artisan Market, 632 North Winton Rd, February 6th from 6-8 pm.

Karen has a chronic disease, Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) This is a severe form of neuromuscular disease. This disability has not stopped her though. Through the use of various mobility aids she has overcome her disability and is creating beautiful pieces of unique art, concentrating mostly on jewelry. When I first met Karen she explained to me that she started to create beautiful jewelry so she can see her work worn and it makes her feel beautiful again. Karen does not need anything to make her beautiful! Her warm glow, strength and beautiful soul, that she portrays in her creations shows her inner beauty, the true form of beauty. Visit Soulstice Artisan Market on February 6th, another “First Friday” event in Rochester, to meet Karen and be inspired. For more information, please call the store at 585-370-0076.
