The Legend

MADE FOR EACH OTHER

The butterfly is a flying flower,
The flower a tethered butterfly.
~Ponce Denis Écouchard Lebrun

A butterfly’s goal in life is nectar, nectar and more nectar. So where do you find butterflies? Anywhere you find flowers. Simple – but what a breathtakingly beautiful symbiosis. An explosion of felted blooms conceals Textile Designer Suneetha/Bhaavana’s exquisite floral creation of ribbon work and felted passementerie. A peek inside reveals swirls of butterflies as the flowers take flight. Jewelry designer Ronda Terry’s kiln-forged button of bejeweled and enameled copper discs completes the vision.

Poised and waiting dawn’s pure light, Flowers soar in joyous flight . . .

Susan Hollingsworth

Susan Hollingsworth has always had a knack for storytelling. Her years spent living in countries from Europe to Asia introduced her to the ancient practice of fiber art and the techniques that women used to create visual stories – with thread and fabric – passed down to them from their ancestors. During a stint in London, she studied pattern making from the Central St. Martins College of Art and Design, which became the catalyst for SuKaz jackets. Rather than pen and paper, Susan designs wearable pieces of art, each one telling a unique story through the hands of skilled artisans from cultures around the globe.

The Art

Made For Each Other jacket panel collage

Suneetha/Bhavaana

The Sukaz Art Panels of India include a wealth of textile art techniques evoking a brilliance of color and the depths of mystery in the Indian culture. In collaboration with Sukaz, stories are spun to vivid life by the skillful artistry of Suneetha/Bhaavana’s applique, silk origami, and needlefelt and further enhanced with touches of beading, applique, and braiding.

Ronda Terry

Multi- talented jewelry artist Ronda Terry works magic in her Michigan studio, conjuring delicacy and beauty from bits of rough metal, raw gemstones, and broken glass. Each of her exquisite creations is forged using caustic chemicals, 1500 degree heat, and a master’s hand. Ronda fashions a range of jewelry, dichroic glass tile, and buttons using techniques of kiln firing, enameling, casting and etching. And each brings its own brand of magic to a Sukaz jacket.
