Tumbled Earth is the creation and passion of Kara Clarke.

Tumbled Earth's Kara Clarke

Kara spent many childhood hours poring over her grandfather’s collection of rocks, gemstones, and other eclectic trinkets. Inspired, she would study and drink in every vibrant detail.

She has now created a thriving business from her love of stones, nature and the outdoors.

Designing jewelry since 2009, Kara collects each Tumbled Earth stone from the shores of the Kootenay River with the help of her children, Nathan and Marla, and her husband, Dave.  The 22,000 year old stones were formed by glaciers and naturally tumbled by the water.  Back in her studio, she drills the tiny holes by hand and polishes each stone, ready for use in her creations with mixed metals, earthy charms, and other natural elements.

Featured in Kootenay Living Magazine - Autumn 2017, named one of the Top 10 Kootenay Business People of 2016, and won Kimberley Chamber of Commerce Home Business of the Year in 2014 and 2015, Kara focuses on quality and uniqueness, and has become well known for her authentic earthy and bohemian style.

"It’s easy to fall in love with the beautiful Kootenays. We’re surrounded by mountains, forest, rivers, and lakes. When you wear a piece of Tumbled Earth you’ll feel an organic connection to nature and the land we’re all a part of." 

"The stones are as old as time but created into modern designs."

    From a small mountain community high in the East Kootenays Tumbled Earth is both distinctive and linked with the mountains themselves. Kara's designs are unique, customized and inspired by her connection to the earth itself. I remain both a customer and fan of her designs.

    I have several pieces of Tumbled Earth jewelry, and I get so many compliments on them! Kara has done such a beautiful job of putting together jewelry that is simple, unique and easy to wear. It's hard to find jewelry like this that feels earthy and natural. Each piece from Tumbled Earth tells a different story and embodies the natural beauty of the Kootenays. Kara is constantly adding new designs to her line, so it's always fun to go back and see what she is working on. I love the jewelry and supporting a local BC artist who loves what she does!

    I have been a customer of Kara's for two years and am always in awe of her ability to turn naturally beautifully pieces of nature into pieces of art. I don't feel like I'm wearing jewelry, it feels like a part of me. Kara has done some custom work for me with precious rocks I have found on my travels, she has turned them into pieces I can wear everyday. I am so proud and honoured to also be selling her original work in my gift shop.
