Abstracted leaf and flower forms combine with colorful pearly beads to make a lively multi-colored necklace.
Mary Karg is a nationally recognized designer, instructor, and author from Cincinnati, Ohio. She considers herself a wearable artist rather than a jewelry designer, specializing in lampwork, beadwork, and metalwork. Mary seldom makes the same thing twice, although she will get hooked on something she can’t quit until the itch is totally scratched: masks/faces, dragged dots, windows, color pencil on metal, bead embroidery, and the current obsession, colored pencil on copper layered jewelry. Her book, Layered Colored Pencil Jewelry, was published in May 2017.
“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.”
