I’m Karis Jay Simons, a 17 year old jewelry designer. I’ve been designing for the past 2 years, and it’s become a passion of mine. Last year I participated in the ENC Marketplace and had a great time. When I am not in school, my interests are art and of course, jewelry making. A great deal of my free time is spent at the ENC, where I work as an LIT and help care for the animals. The Environmental Nature Center really has become a home away from home for me.
