Center stage with Susan Lenart Kazmer’s “Opera Singer”, a mixed media resin and metal jewelry holder
Experience the opera with Susan Lenart Kazmer via her “Opera Singer”…
The people waiting expectantly for the lush heavy curtains to rise and part, the richly hued costumes, the lavish sets, the thrill of the first note when the opera singer sets her voice free.
The “Opera Singer” is backstage in her dressing room fretting about what hat to wear in her performance tomorrow. Which one do you suggest?
Did you notice that all these hats double as rings?
Susan Lenart Kazmer created her Opera Singer as a jewelry holder.
Susan wears wire.
What captures your attention?
Color (soft pinks and red that go with 2015 spring color predictions)?
The thrill of a eureka moment (the lightbulb bezel prayer box-a truly advanced metalsmithing skill that takes a delicate touch)?
A sense of joy?
The spirit of fun?
Susan has traveled to Thailand several times, but the first adventure was some 30 years ago and she hold the memories of visiting museums and sacred places precious.
She says this about one Chinese painting: “the washed out reds and whites and pinks are still alive in my head.”
No. 22, Volume … unknown.
When was the first time you tore pages out of a book to make jewelry?
If you would like to learn more about Susan’s techniques working with resin and metal, her recent book “Resin Alchemy” and DVDs “Forge Wire Cages” and “Explorations in Jewelry Enameling” are available now.
