About Us

Karen Daniels, the creator of Tess & Tomy, grew up on a farm in Illinois and currently lives in St. Louis, MO. On the farm, she craved city life and the fashion scene. In the city, she craved the outdoors and the ease of farm life.
After 20 years of working in fashion, she retired and once again the outdoors became her inspiration! Nothing in her jewelry box seemed to work for outdoor fashion...fueling her creative juices. Soon after, Tess & Tomy was born.
Tess & Tomy pieces are artisan made; comprised of fresh-water pearls, wrapped in suede and knotted into lavish strands. Karen adds turquoise, carved wooden beads, bone, quartz and other natural ornaments that make each creation one-of-a-kind and are as much as an individual as you are.
Layering strand after strand, dressing yourself in elegant pearls, each design can be worn various ways. Although, intended as necklaces, they also look beautiful on your wrist.
Because each piece is one-of-a-kind, please understand that the images shown are intended to provide a general idea of the different styles of Tess necklaces that are available.
Part of the boho spirit is having a certain element of surprise upon receiving your piece, but know that your preferences and guidance are welcomed and encouraged when ordering a Tess design. That said, we intend 100% customer satisfaction.
This is Tess & Tomy
