Susan Lenart Kazmer: Silhouette Bracelet using ICED Enamels®
Move Over Jeweler’s Saw – Silhouettes are here! Silhouettes are sweet little bronze cut-outs that Susan has designed for you to use in your mixed media work! You can use them individually or layer two of them to create a “window”. You can insert text, images or photos (painted with ICE Resin of course!) inside the window. The bronze takes easily to a metal hole punch, and then you can attach the two layers with our new selection of Brads or Nuts and Screws. Painting them in an array of colors from our new ICED Enamels® line is the next step, and voila! Sassy little bronze cut outs as mixed media wearable art! You’ll find small rhinestones to lay on the surface on our Rue Romantique page, and a variety of wire to complete your projects. Have Fun!

Our Jewelers Grade Bezels are handmade by Susan Lenart Kazmer and cast in sterling silver & white bronze. They are perfect for jewelers looking for finer metal bezels and available only as special orders in quantities of 12 or more.
Luscious Iced Enamels melted and covered in ICE Resin.
Our Iced Enamels® program is a unique, custom formulated, proprietary Cold Enameling system for permanent adhesion of color on metal. Our custom system of enameling powders, enameling medium and ICE Resin® work symbiotically to create a permanent, jeweler’s grade bond of color on all types of metals, from precious metals to base metals.
Iced Enamels® were expressly developed for creative people who enjoy the look of torch-fired or kiln-fired enamels as much as we do. Combine our Enamel Medium with our quick-melting Relique powders and solidify with a craft heat gun for beautiful mixed-media metalwork in minutes. Seal with a thin coat of ICE Resin® to create a permanent Cold Enameling bond that will never rub off, fade or yellow over time. Use Iced Enamels® in our new mixed metal bezels or on our Talisman Silhouettes for art that lasts lifetimes.
