Karla Proud has been in the fine jewelry business for over 40 years, beginning with tourmaline gemstone mining in San Diego County, California in the 1970’s. She went on to open a total of six fine jewelry stores in La Jolla, Fallbrook and Beverly Hills, California; Honolulu, Hawaii and Tokyo, Japan. She also managed a jewelry manufacturing facility in Hawaii. Karla moved from Honolulu Hawaii to Bend, Oregon in 2006 to “Romance the Oregon Sunstone”.
The Oregon Sunstone website has been through several iterations. The original versions were eCommerce sites. There was always an issue with the functionality of the payment gateway.
Five12 Digital rebranded, designed and built Karla’s new Oregon Sunstone website to showcase her talent and jewelry.
