About Me

Jen Cushman is a natural storyteller who found mixed media art a decade ago and never looked back. She is drawn to the imperfect, the funky, the quirky, the artsy and the authentic: be it people or objects or art. She is Vice President and Co-Creative Director of ICE Resin Susan Lenart Kazmer.

Jen is the author of Explore, Create, Resinate: Mixed Media Techniques with ICE Resin®, which won a national bronze metal in the Independent Book Publishers Association as well as Making Metal Jewelry; How to Stamp, Fold, Form, and Forge Metal Jewelry Designs (North Light Books/ Jan. 2013).

Her art has been published in Belle Armoire Jewelry, Jewelry Affaire, Somerset Studios, Somerset Life, Cloth, Paper, Scissors, Mingle, Somerset Workshop, WireWork magazine and others. Currently, she writes a marketing column for artists in Belle Armoire Jewelry and also a new column called “The Mixed-Media Metalsmith” teaching basic jewelry making in Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine.

An enthusiastic and supportive instructor, Jen teaches more than jewelry-making and paper crafting techniques. She encourages others to explore their authentic, creative process to create art that is real and personally meaningful.
