Welcome to
Gallery 11

Meet the owners!

Welcome to Gallery 11, where Kara and Chris Ballard, a passionate husband and wife team, share their love for exquisite gems and jewelry. After moving to Waco in 2017, we immersed ourselves in supporting local businesses, which led us to open Gallery 11 in 2023.

Kara expertly sources top-notch gems and crystals, while Chris, with almost two decades of experience, crafts each custom jewelry piece with meticulous care and unmatched skill. Our mission is to bring you the highest quality and fine craftsmanship in every creation.
