Mary Karg

Mary Karg Mary considers herself a wearable artist rather than a jewelry designer and specializes in lampwork , beadwork and metalwork. She seldom makes the same thing twice, although she will get hooked on something she can’t quit until the itch is totally scratched; Mask/Faces, dragged dots, windows, and lately, colored pencil on metal has been her obsession. “Using colored pencil on metal allows me to push the boundaries of wearable art that produces results unlike any other method. Surprisingly both durable and lightweight, the layers of color and metal combine to form unique pieces of texture, depth and beauty. I love the reaction when people connect with my pieces – personal adornment is often an outward expression of intimate emotions and personality.”Karg is usually plugging away in her studio in Loveland, Ohio. But has been known to schlep her stuff to various parts of the U.S. She's done the big shows like Tucson, Bead & Button, and Bead Fest, but also really enjoys the intimacy of trunk shows. She's been fortunate to have her work grace the pages of Bead & Button, Lapidary Journal, 1000 Glass Beads, 500 Beaded Objects, Beads of Glass, Glass Bead Evolution and has been in exhibits and traveling shows. She recently released her book "Layered Colored Pencil Jewelry."
