Karla Rosenbusch is the Associate Editor of Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist and Editor of the Tucson Show Guide. A native of the Detroit area, Karla first worked in the Public Relations/Corporate Communications Department of Chrysler Corporation. She later moved into magazine publishing and worked as Senior Editor of Automobile Quarterly, an automotive history and classic car publication. A relative newcomer to the jewelry making world, Karla joined Interweave in 2007 as Managing Editor of Colored Stone. That job launched her love of unusual and lesser-known stones and gem material. She now spends her free time creating her own beaded and stone jewelry and experimenting with different jewelry techniques. Karla lives in a 250-year old farmhouse in the tiny village of Yellow House, Pennsylvania with a cat named Bubba.
