Susan Lenart KazmerICE RESIN® Announce New Product Lines for CHA 

January 10, 2013

Internationally acclaimed metalsmith and award-winning Mixed-Media Artist Susan Lenart Kazmer is pleased to present two new products lines for her company ICE Resin® this weekend at the annual Craft and Hobby Association Winter 2013 trade show.

As a master metalsmith with a long history in kiln-fired and torch-fired enameling, Susan is thrilled to the debut Iced Enamels™, the heart of our Cold Enameling program, an innovative new method to bring color to metal. Artists and crafters can easily achieve the look and feel of traditional enameling with our new Iced Enamels™ products and an array of mixed-media techniques. ICE Resin® Designers will give demos of the new cold enameling program at our booth #2576 throughout the event.

In addition, Susan Lenart Kazmer™ ICE Resin® will debut its first designer line, Rue Romantiqueby Kristen Robinson. The line is a gorgeous collection of Victorian bezels that have been re-imagined to meet the needs of today’s jewelry designers while staying true to the romantic sentiments of a more genteel era. Kristen will give demos and showcase her line at the booth throughout CHA Winter.

Members of the press are welcome to visit our booth to see the new lines and also collect a physical press kit with samples of bezels and ICE Resin®.

ICE Resin® is Susan Lenart Kazmer’s signature product. It is a jeweler’s grade, non-toxic-when-cured, ultra clear, epoxy resin. ICE Resin® is the preferred resin art medium for professional artists who sell their mixed-media jewelry and art work because it will not fade or yellow over time. Crafters who wish to create heritage jewelry are also pleased with the beautiful clarity ICE Resin® makes it possible for them to achieve and preserve.

Susan Lenart Kazmer, a well known Metalsmith and Jeweler (based in Vermilion, Ohio) is bringing more than 20 years of work as a successful mixed-media artist to Michaels stores this Spring with the debut of her innovative line of crafting products that crosses many artistic mediums.

For Susan, the new Industrial ChicTM Mixed Media line is a return to her roots. For more than 20 years, Susan has been combining her metalsmithing background with her passion for found objects to create work that runs the gamut from jewelry to art journaling, three-dimensional sculpture to home decor. Now that mixed-media is trending in the Crafts industry, customers are enthusiastically embracing the Industrial ChicTM look to inspire their own creative interests.

Elements of the Industrial Chic TM line can easily be used by scrap bookers, fiber artists, art journalers, card makers, beaders and home decorators to add dimension, texture and color to their crafting projects, making it a true mixed-media crossover line. In addition, Horizon Group USA is publishing an instructional book of 20 projects showing how simple it is to incorporate Industrial ChicTM into multiple mediums.

Susan Lenart Kazmer is an explorer and inventor. During her studies at the Art Institute of Chicago, she pioneered the integration of fibers and found objects with traditional metalsmithing and jewelry techniques. As a contemporary builder of talisman, Susan repurposes objects of modern-day culture and reinterprets these artifacts into work that is layered with spiritual and historical significance. Her work has been recognized by the Smithsonian Institute of Art, the Huntington Museum of Art, the Ohio Craft Museum and the American Craft Council.
