Instructor: Susan Lenart Kazmer
Susan Lenart Kazmer’s work is built on years of researching cultures, repairing ethnographic adornment, art school, training in the craft of metallurgy and a strong fashion background. This has made her work that she calls “Expressive Adornment” a unique voice in the industry. Susan’s work includes building talismans, prayer boxes, amulets and magic for the fashion, museum, gallery and commercial world for over 20 years. Early on in her career, Susan built a handmade and commercial line of jewelry for Henri Bendel, Banana Republic, Nordstrom, Ann Taylor, as well as various independent and upscale boutiques. She recently built the successful commercial line of components called Industrial Chic. Susan’s work has been in numerous traveling exhibits including the Smithsonian Museum and the Art Institute of New York. She is the author of Resin Alchemy, which was on Amazon’s 2013 best seller list. It includes a pioneering ten-year body of work combining metal and ICE Resin®, a jeweler’s grade resin she developed and brought to market. Susan authored her first book Making Connections: A Handbook of Cold Joins for Jewelers and Mixed-Media Artists in 2008. Susan’s innovative new work can be seen in the March 2014 issue of U.S. ELLE magazine as she re-enters the fashion world and on the runway in New York and on her website at susanlenartkazmer.com.
