Floridian Karen McGovern is a conservation biologist who creates art and polymer clay jewelry to raise funds for wildlife conservation. "Art can save the world!" she says.

The stories that Karen tells with her jewelry are fascinating…like The Bubble Lady, a polymer clay altered art storybook necklace which it says is "…perfect for those who keep the child inside alive and well entertained." Her Climbing Woman Vine story is told by the piece pictured here.

Karen is all over the web. Find her at Etsy here and at IndiPublic here. Her blog seems to be a bit out of kilter but I’m sure she’ll get back to it and you’ll want to visit regularly.
