Making jewelry led her to thinking about how social and cultural values are communicated by “things,” how personal objects shape our lives and reflect our beliefs. She enjoys making art that challenges the status quo, often with irony and paradox.

Susan’s work has been exhibited and published in the United States, Canada and Europe. She’s authored articles on craft, culture and environmental issues and written the technical book, Hydraulic Die Forming for Jewelers and Metalsmiths.

In 2006 she co-founded the non-profit organization, Ethical Metalsmiths, whose mission is to promote responsible jewelry practices through education, connection and action.

Join Us for Winter Party 2014

MBMAG

Invites you to a lively presentation on Hot Topics with

Harriete Estel Berman

Harriete Estel Berman

Join us for the Winter Members Party on Sunday, February 16, 2014.  The Potluck is at 12:30, with a general membership Meeting at 1:00, and finally at 1:30… Harriete.  This year’s Winter Party will be held at the Haute Enchilada Restaurant in Moss Landing, in the meeting room out back.  If you went to last year’s Winter Party, it is the same location.

Harriete Estel Berman is a California artist, jeweler, silversmith, sculptor, lecturer and educator. She will begin with a brief description of her work with examples on hand and will continue to spice things up with a lively discussion on professional development. Do you suffer from self-rejection when it comes to applying for exhibitions? Wonder how to promote your work effectively online? Want tips for the best strategies for your images, website or blog? Controversial issues? Burning topics? Or everyday professional practices that will boost your career? Nothing is too hot to Ask Harriete about.

Go to the MBMAG Facebook Group to send questions to Harriete directly and she will include it in the presentation. If you are facing an issue you can bet someone else is also.
