I am enchanted by objects that do double-duty and I have been intrigued by Susan Lenart Kazmer’s free-spirited mixed-media art since 2006, so I was delighted to see that her new series incorporates removable, wearable art jewelry.

The Opera Singer, sterling silver wire and sheet metal, resin, fiber, feathers, paper
The Circus Troupe will include six figures – The Opera Singer, pictured here, is Kazmer’s first completed figure in the troupe. Made up of a collection of removable jewelry and wearing several rings as her hats, this lady is also adorned with two pairs of earrings, three bangle bracelets, a stack of twelve sterling silver bangles and a charm bracelet skirt. Wow!
Next week Alison Lee and I will be students in one of Kazmer’s classes at Beadfest Philadelphia. Her book and Metalwork DVD have tickled my muse already – I look forward to learning how to craft my own mixed-media rings.
Will we see you at Beadfest Philadelphia? Let me know!
