Meet Shop Artist: Sara Kharatyan of Crown & Heart KC

Museum Shop

A native of Kansas City, Sara Kharatyan is a certified K-12 art teacher currently in her tenth year of teaching. Inspired to create a line of affordable jewelry to complement a minimalist wardrobe, Crown & Heart is designed to be bold enough to be a statement, but simple enough to be worn every day.

Kharatyan writes:

While I love teaching, Crown & Heart was born from a desire to nurture my own artistic inclinations. The name of my shop was borrowed from my maiden name, Crownhart.

I work from my home studio and make every piece of porcelain from hand. I cut it, sand it, fire it, paint it, fire it, glaze it, fire it, assemble it, and package it all myself. It is a labor of love.

My pieces are designed to be modern and simple but also fun and colorful. They are wearable pieces of art. I hope you love them as much as I love making them.
