“We don’t make mistakes, We just have happy accidents.” – Bob Ross
Kirsten Lara jewelry was created by Kirsten Forbes in 2015.
Who from an early age was always collecting different pieces of jewelry.
Usually from Value Village or thrift shops, and even tried her hand at beading and braiding and wire work.
It had always been her dream to melt metal, even out of high school she wanted to do welding.
Her chance came when her husband happened to talk to the right person,
while searching for a ring for their 7th wedding anniversary.
It was the best gift he could have given.
Kirsten was mentored by a master silversmith with over 40 years of creating around the world and Victoria BC.
Kirsten’s style is a graceful collaboration of old-world meets organic, raw and minimalist.
With happy accidents and the best mistakes helping her with innovation and new ideas.
This little business is a passion that was more than she could have dreamed of and is constantly in awe of the support and love she receives when people choose her work.
This one woman show means that all aspects of your order are handled by me.
Your pieces are made one at a time, by me, with my little hands and my brain full of love.
