The Legend

SONG OF THE MOUNTAINS AND STEPPES

The music of the Central Asian country Kazakhstan is an essential ingredient of its rich cultural traditions, and the two-stringed dombra takes center stage in most musical presentations. The pastoral scene of a young man with his dombra is depicted in brilliant hand embroidery by Chinese artisans. The allure is heightened with beaded embellishment, and completed with a handforged, bejeweled and enameled button by American jewelry artist Ronda Terry.

There’s A Song In The Air . . .

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.

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.
