About Werthwhile Studio
Karen Werth is owner of Werthwhile Studio - an intimate fine craft studio, located in the heart of 16th Street Heights NW, in Washington, DC. It is here that she creates one of a kind fused glass pieces and fine craft work.
From the time she was 12 years old, Karen knew that she wanted to create. It happened when her older brother brought home a silver necklace he was making for a high school art metals class. Until that moment, she had no idea she could make jewelry, by hand! From then on, it became her life goal to create with hand and heart. She eventually earned fine art degrees in sculpture, jewelry design, and metalsmithing, and found her way into the fused glass world, thanks in part, to her love of color and pattern.
Karen has exhibited sculpture and jewelry nationally, and her work is included in private collections throughout the U.S.
