Karen Sam Norgard a premiere jewelry designer

every piece is unique and one of a kind


Welcome to Norgard Designs.  Thank you for viewing the site.  Here you’ll find a myriad of unique items and a short overview of the work in three galleries: Jewelry, Perishable Prints, and Sculpture.  I am excited to share with you that my focus on jewelry has opened the door to create a new class, “Bead Technique for Jewelry” at the Savannah College of Art and Design where I am a Professor.  I am also thrilled to report that my work has been included in Andre Leon Talley’s book “Little Black Dress” which accompanied his exhibition at the new SCAD Museum of Art and went on to thrill visitors in Paris.  My pieces are carried by several galleries in locations as far reaching as Lacoste, France, and locally here in Savannah GA.
