Kara Strope Warr has worked in fashion since her teen years and her love for the industry drove her to begin designing jewelry while attending the University of Alabama. She began selling her pieces at sorority houses on campus and trunk shows. Soon, it was a thriving business and her designs were being sold in boutiques all over the South. Her costume jewelry soon turned to diamonds and the KSD Fine Jewelry Collection began. Now, the collection combines pave and rose cut diamonds with oxidized sterling silver, precious gemstones and pearls. She lives in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, with her husband, Michael, and four children. While the collection in itself has many beautiful pieces to offer, Kara also offers custom pieces as an exciting design option for her clients.
