Mary Barr’s creative mind keeps her busy as an accomplished Author, Artist and Custom Jewelry Designer.
As a Fiction Author, Mary’s preferred genres are juvenile, young adult, & adult. Writing in a variety of genres enables her stories to remain fresh, stimulating, & challenging. As each plot unfolds she knows the feelings, needs, personality and fears of her characters . . .
Mary Barr’s books are pure fiction; at no time is there any relevance to persons living or dead. Her many characterizations are as limitless as her imagination restricted merely by the hours in each day. Each new book presents itself in a clear and concise manner and she must immediately put pen to paper if she is to capture the story before it’s compromised. It is the characters who build the plot. Each story line is only as strong as the people it portrays.
Having traveled extensively and experienced life in different countries throughout the world, Mary Barr is able to draw on her life journey as she creates colorful and varied characters. It is these characters who once alive capture the reader’s imagination while enhancing her fast paced & compelling story line.
As an Artist, Mary Barr creates beautifully unique pieces. Her latest collection of wax artwork uses different canvases from cottons, linens to the more exotics. Her medium of boiling wax, pastels, gold leaf and fluorescence captures the brilliance of color flow. You will want to display her pieces in your home.
Custom Jewelry Design is another Mary Barr specialty. Using semi-precious stones, crystals & glass Mary creates comfortable & appealing pieces to be worn and cherished. Whether for everyday wear or for a special occasion Mary will create unique pieces, just for you.

About Connie: Connie Fox was a psychotherapist who turned to fabricating jewelry 18years ago. Once a means of balancing her very demanding job, jewelrymaking eventually became her full time pursuit. In the course of learningfabrication skills she realized her designs were mundane and unsatisfying.This realization turned into a quest to learn as much about jewelry designas she could. Fifteen years later, she is sharing what she learned in her recently self-published eBook, Maker Magic: How to Develop YOUR Voice Designing Art Jewelry. She wrote the book for people who are overwhelmedwith choices, stuck in repeating familiar designs, referencing otherswork, or simply in need of design information."

Our guest on Metalsmith Benchtalk on Thursday, August 27th at 3:00 pm PST is metalsmith and jewelry designer Marilyn Brogan, owner of Meader Works, in San Diego, CA.
Please join us for this live interview and participate by logging onto the chatroom at Blogtalkradio.com or by sending a message to Whaley Studios via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
My name is Marilyn Brogan and I’m the designer, maker and curator of Meander Works, a one-woman studio based in San Diego, California. Meander Works offers delicate, minimalist jewelry made from recycled gold and silver – and soon, a line of engagement rings and wedding bands featuring recycled and traceable diamonds.
I deeply value and admire good craftsmanship and believe a design is only as good as its execution. Jewelry is an expression of both the maker and the wearer – the quality of the construction is essential to that collaboration. If a ring looks beautiful but it is poorly made, then it may not feel right, fit right, or last. I’m inspired by antique jewelry and love the function of heirlooms. Like the handmade Appalachian quilts passed down to me from my great-grandmother, fine jewelry tells a story across generations. When I finish a piece of jewelry, I see a story that’s just beginning.
