Karen Bellitto Weaves Shiny Happy Dangles

Karen Bellitto Weaves Shiny Happy Dangles

Chainmaille. The stuff of knights and legends. King Arthur and dragons. Frodo and Jon Snow. (You get the idea). Karen Bellitto hand-weaves metal rings into jewelry and accessories using patterns and techniques from as far back as the 12th Century! She is passionate about art and music. Kindness and equality. Love and creativity. In her words, "Sprinkle that stuff around everywhere and the world will be a better place."

While Karen was a medical social worker in NY, working with terminal cancer patients and their families, she and her mother were both diagnosed with cancer themselves. "It made for difficult boundaries while helping others but where I was working and who I was working with made it both a learning and growth experience. I tend not to take things for granted because of this...and I am grateful."

"My nickname from many of my friends is "Care Bear". I tend to nurture and protect and want to help. I'm an empath, I absorb positive and negative energy. Creating beautiful things and meeting new people brings me joy."
