For the last several years, her passion for design has turned to jewelry, creating unique one-of-a-kind necklaces, earrings, and bracelets, mixing old and new. "I like to take vintage centerpieces and add just the right combination of new and old beads to create something beautiful and timeless."

There is a pillow in the home office of Karen Braverman-Freeman that is emblazoned with a thought that she uses as a guiding principle: "A hundred years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, the type of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove. But the world might be different because I was important in the life of a child."

Karen was honored with the "KNX Citizen of the Week" award for her many hours of volunteer work with abused children, the homeless & animal rescue. She is the Long Beach Cancer League's Chair of "Adopt A Family" program, giving holiday gifts to children with Cancer & their families. She provides materials & teaches jewelry making at Camp Summersault, involving children with Cancer & their siblings. She volunteers with C.A.S.A, providing Prom gowns to girls in foster care.
