The “Magical” Necklace by Susan Nessel, Student At The Armory Art Center

The Rickie Report knows that this time of year is one of flux and change, as people graduate and move onto another road in life’s journey.  The “Magical Necklace” is such a wonderful way to share the legacy of the time shared together. We thank Susan Nessel, a student at the Armory Art Center, for her creativity and willingness to share this lesson of gratitude.

“The Magical Necklace”

 

Susan Nessel is a jewelry designer and metalsmith from Jupiter, FL. She wanted to convey her respect and admiration for her fellow artist and long time friend, Elizabeth Kleiman of Palm Beach, FL by presenting her with a Magical Necklace at a farewell party given in her honor at the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach.

 

 

Susanʼs idea was to have Elizabethʼs fellow artists in the Metal, Jewelry and Glass Departments at the Armory Art Center each create an individual bead representing their unique style of work. A necklace was then designed and fabricated by Susan incorporating all of the handmade pieces.  There was so much interest in the project from all of the artists wanting to show support for their fellow artist that the necklace became very long.

The very long Magical Necklace represents not only the respect and admiration for a long time friend by her peers but the true benefit and value of community and sharing in a creative and supportive environment made possible by the Armory Art Center.  Elizabethʼs commitment to the Armory for over 15 years will be greatly missed as she retires to Boston, MA.

 

 

 

 
The contributing artists include: Susan Nessel, Janice Weisler, Joe Brandom, Rishar Miranda, Ruth Hartman, Denise Delrusso, Nikki Trammell, Kirsten Lievendag, Aliza Gerstein, Pat Levey, Lisa Johnson, Gail Brader, Shari La Brenz, Ellen Levy, Camile Perrin, Gail Leavitt, Margo Gibson.

Beautifully Hand Dyed Shawl

Beautifully Hand Dyed Shawl

 

Suzanne goes on to share, “What I love about fiber art is the surprise element – the mixture of the fabric, the dye and the resist create different combinations of results that are only revealed at the final step. The magic when the freshly dyed indigo comes out of the vat and turns from green to blue right before your eyes! It is always a surprise when I unwrap a freshly dyed piece of fabric! I currently specialize in Shibori and Batik. For me, these art forms are an excuse to use vibrant colors and simple shapes to produce designs, without having to worry too much about the details –just as in life, there are no “mistakes” with fiber, and everything is always subject to change. The imperfections are all part of the creative process. I typically use African Adinka symbols as inspirations in my batik prints and create my own stamps.  I am always learning new techniques and experimenting with them. Every piece created is a unique one of a kind original!”

Unique Paper Art by Del Foxton

Unique Paper Art by Del Foxton

 

Del Foxton tells The Rickie Report, “Circa 105 AD the Chinese invented an awesome process to make paper. More than 2000 years later, I follow a similar process to create my fine art. My Artistry in Handmade Paper began with my belief in the saying that if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem!”

Del explains, “When having to take our own garbage to the local dump, I saw the opportunity to use our paper discards to create environmentally friendly artworks. Environmental responsibility together with a limited recycling program in our area prompted the obsession to up cycle paper and garden castoffs into artistic creations.”

Del says, “The opportunity to honor our environment while indulging my passion of hand paper making pleases me. I believe that many establishments, homes and businesses who have already addressed environmental issues, may also want to consider extending their programs to the artistry hanging on their walls.”
