About the Artist
Marjorie Kalama prefers to be called Marge. Marge has beading techniques that have been used for centuries. She has the desire to replenish the family heirlooms. Each beaded piece, whether a family heirloom project or micro business project, is inspired by the study of old beadwork. Marge has also participated in a MAWS Tribal Member Art Show and held an internship with the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture.
